Relaxing Summer Fun for the Whole Family
Who doesn’t love taking a summer drive to visit a new place? If you start out on the #2 highway, with Stewiacke as your destination, you’ll find just what you need.
In addition to the beautiful countryside, you’ll see rolling hills, endless farmland, and unique spots like the Meadows Two Rivers Tidal Bore Viewing Area where you will see the confluence of the Shubenacadie and Stewiacke rivers, view eagles and see a tidal bore and so much more…

You can walk your dog off-leash in a fenced-in area, including a separate section for smaller dogs.
