RETURNING TO YOUR COMMUNITY
“Le Réseau de développement économique et d’employabilité du Nouveau-Brunswick” (RDÉE NB) launched nine short videos to highlight the young people who’ve returned to the region in which they were raised after time a short time away. Rexton’s former General Manager, Ashley Francis, was a part of this amazing experience. See the links below:
Legend says a Chieftain set off to find a River of Fire, a place free of war and sickness. He discovered our river at sunset, ablaze in brilliant red, and settled here. A visit to the Richibucto River Museum will give you the complete story, and tell you of our first settlers, Eastern Canada’s Mi’kmaq First Nation.
See the historic side of Rexton with a treasure map. Search for clues that will take you back to our history with little tidbits of information. Stop at the Bonar Law Historic Site and tour the 1870s home and birthplace of Andrew Bonar Law. With spectacular views of the water, our gazebo host many activities (be there for our music nights). Take a quiet walk down our “Walk Through Time” trail. Tour our landmark building, St. Andrew’s Church, and the two other churches. Peek at treasures overflowing from the shelves of our local craft stores.
A stroll in MacNarin Park will showcase the sensory delight of hundreds of blooms. If you follow the trail path, there is a small children’s park! Or adventure out to Kenney Park for a picnic in our lovely gazebo or simply to take a seat on our benches, taking in the landscape.
Are you looking to do a little boating this summer, no problem, we got you! Carson’s Landing has a unique view of the water, our bridge and our tall ship (see info below). Docking fees can be purchased at the Rexton Irving’s.
Smile a While Coffee & Dairy Bar, this charming spot is too good to resist. Located on Main Street and offers a drive-thru option!
End your evening at Jardine’s Inn where you can relax and be treated like royalty or take a guided tour with old-fashioned lanterns, walk the dark streets of downtown with a local storyteller and hear the tale of the “Pine Lady”!
