envision yourself herecity of fredericton

Nestled along the shores of the Wolastoq River, Fredericton is as much urban energy as small-town charm. NBCCD is tucked within the historic Garrison District in the downtown core, with its countless festivals and events, restaurants, shops, pubs, and cafes. Slow down with a visit to a gallery, art studio or get closer to nature in a kayak, running a trail, or just hanging out in a park.
