Business Improvement Area

Local Fishing and Fisherman's Commemorative Park

The committee has made the decision to see to a project that would focus on the history of Richibucto and in particular the history of fishing. A green space where people will see a piece of wood work art made by a local artist who would have a fisherman sitting on a lobster cage surrounded by all the different fish and crustaceans that are fished in our region. This cage would allow people to sit down and be photographed. An anchor will also be in the back to support our slogan; Come and drop anchor! Trees, flowers and benches will embellish the land, which will be complimented by the Richibucto River.

Secondly, interpretation boards will be installed in the park, along the existing footbridge and also on the small island that is part of this land and acts as a breakwater. These tables will explain Richibucto's story from fishing to the Rum Runners.

Lastly, an island adjacent to this land that serves as a breakwater for the wharf will be developed so that it can be reached on foot so that people will be able to enjoy the Richibucto River more closely.
