Discover the ‘Hidden Secrets’ of the Riverfront Trail in new walking tour starting July 13

Sure, you’ve seen the Riverfront Trail before but have you really experienced it? Paused to smell the flowers or read its inscriptions and stories?

The Town of Riverview’s new Hidden Secrets walking tour explores the charming history of Riverview’s breathtaking riverfront trail. Discover the leaders, visionaries and humble do-gooders who all played a part in shaping this New Brunswick landmark into the gem that it is today.

Scheduled to coincide with the tidal bore, each tour starts at the Fundy Chocolate River Station (391 Coverdale Road) and spans a distance of approximately 1.5 km. There will be an optional shuttle service returning to the Fundy Chocolate River Station, where snacks and refreshments will be provided, at the end of the 90-minute tour.

Dates and times as scheduled (please arrive 5 minutes early for check-in):

  • July 13th at 12:30 p.m.
  • July 23rd at 9:00 a.m.
  • August 10th at 11:00 a.m.
  • August 24th at 11:00 a.m.

Stops will include the iconic red gazebo, captain’s sign, covered bridge, ‘Third Wave’ stone sculpture, the David Williams flower garden and – with a bit of luck -- the tidal bore itself. Nature can be unpredictable, however, and we can’t guarantee the tidal bore’s arrival will be during the tour.

Registration is $5 per person and must be done in advance via tinyurl.com/HiddenSecretsTour. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a reusable water bottle, if needed. There will be a chance to refill along the way. Attendees must follow COVID-19 safety protocols and complete a check-in screening before departure.

This summer tour series is led by the Town of Riverview’s engaging summer students in cooperation with the Riverview Historical Association, whose contributors make the Town’s history accessible to everyone through http://riverviewhistoryproject.ca/.
