Fundy Trail Celebrates a Successful Season by Extending Its Fall Operating Dates
The Fundy Trail Development Authority (FTDA) is pleased to that the Fundy Trail Parkway, located in St. Martins, New Brunswick, is extending its season, welcoming visitors right up to Sunday, October 23rd. The park, which normally closes its gates on Thanksgiving Monday, will remain open daily 9 am to 5 pm. The FTDA acknowledges a successful tourism season, with park visitation up 10%.
“Fall provides for some of the Parkway’s most spectacular landscapes and coastal views” said Jane Boyle, FTDA President. “The Fundy Trail will be operational for some contractual obligations for groups who wish to enjoy the fall colours and we wanted to offer our visitors and residents the same opportunity.”
As a result of the on-going support of both the Government of Canada and Province of New Brunswick, including their joint contribution of $22.8 million in June 2014 to support the completion of the Fundy Trail, construction of the final phases of the Fundy Trail Parkway is on schedule and on budget to be opened to the public May 2018. A new phase of the Parkway opened this past May and provides direct access for the public to Long Beach. “This week work has begun on public washrooms to accommodate the traffic that has been enjoying this new section of the Parkway,” says Boyle. Upon completion, the Fundy Trail Parkway will represent one of Atlantic Canada’s largest tourism infrastructure investments in over a decade. The completed Parkway will compliment and strengthen the existing attractions along the eastern shores of the Bay of Fundy including Hopewell Rocks, Cape Enrage and Fundy National Park, while providing visitors with a truly unique coastal experience extending from Saint John to St. Martins, Sussex, Alma and Moncton offering a “World Class Signature Destination”. -30- For more information contact: Jane Boyle, President, Fundy Trail Development Authority Inc. firstname.lastname@example.org (506) 434-3499
