The revitalization of the New Glasgow Riverfront has added a recreational and leisure dimension for all ages and interests. The riverfront is home to a full service marina, the Samson Trail, a 4km trail along the East River and the Pioneer Trail (2km) which connects the trail system to the east side of the town. Victorian style lampposts line the riverside and light the Town’s landmark George Street Bridge and the Samson Trail.
The revitalization of the Riverfront along with the addition of Glasgow Square Theatre has brought new life to the Downtown core and has become a focus for community celebration and festivities. It is also a great source of community pride and was realized through the dedication, imagination and vision of many residents, groups and businesses working together to make the dream a reality.
The Marina is centrally located with a convenient launching point close by, free parking, washroom/showers, gas and diesel for sale. The Marina is under 24 hour surveillance and access to the dock area is restricted.
Whether as a boater, a naturalist strolling on the trails or enjoying one of our many festivals, New Glasgow’s riverfront is the place to enjoy a leisure evening or a fun-festive weekend.
