is delightfully located on the lower reaches of the St. John River, where waterside walking trails congregate a dense downtown packed with brick inheritance buildings. The metropolis is the capital of the province of New Brunswick in eastern Canada, however its museums, busy cafés, and lively intellectual scene are the utmost draw for visitors.
The ambling St. John River bisects the urban and is a main source of leisure, together on and off the water. Parks and trails line the banks of the St. John, and pleasure boats and watercraft make use of the wide, slow river. The Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge, which spans the banks near city center, is a rehabilitated railway bridge that's only open to pedestrians and bicycles. It is branch of both the provincial and Trans-Canada trail systems.
The power-generating Mactaquac Dam altered the scenery of this region significantly, including this 1,300-acre provincial park with its campground, 18-hole golf course, and freshwater beaches. Kings Landing Historical Settlement, about 14 kilometers upstream from the dam, is an additional consequence of the raised river levels. When the dam was built, inheritance buildings in the flooded area were moved to Prince William. Costumed interpreters now reconstruct a 19th-century settlement during the livelihood narration museum.
