One of Fredericton’s most beautiful and historic areas, Officers’ Square was named one of the Top 10 Public Spaces in Canada! It was a centre of military activity when Fredericton was garrisoned by the British and Canadian Armies. During July and August, it is the site for outdoor summer concerts, the Changing of the Guard ceremony, daily outdoor theatre, and a variety of festivals and events throughout the year.

We enjoyed walking the rest of the Garrison Area and reading the informative signs at each building, but this location in front of the museum (open) is still under construction.

Unfortunately, it is under a revitalization process, therefore, we kind of missed the opportunity to see its full beauty. The city aims to complete the project next year...

Great spot to walk around and see the changing of the guard!! Lots to see and do in this area, its a great hub. Also watched some children's theatre activities here. On less busy days I liked to get lunch and read a book at a picnic table in the park. Public washrooms in the square too, and water fountain!

Walked around the Officer's Square a couple of days ago. This is an old area with a couple of museum, however I only stayed outside and didn't visit the museum. Very nice building, and very good pictures opportunity.

Stroll down Queen Street in Fredericton NB and find yourself in the middle of a changing of the guard. Located in officer's square you will be transported back to a time of British rule in the lovely Capital city of New Brunswick

I have seen the changing if the guards at Buckingham palace and while is nothing like it, it is still entertaining in its own right. It’s more a staged production. The history is there, The gun volley is there and the believe-ability is there. There was also a music festival after the changing of the guards. Well worth the trip. Great family activity.

I love going to the park and watching people. I especially enjoy the Ceremonial Guard. The Park is going to be even more amazing once the improvements are done. Change is good.

Great place to relax after the market. Picnic tables and great views, and often there is live music as well.

We watched the changing of the guard here which was very long (one hour) and not at all necessary. If you go, I would recommend only staying for 10 minutes or so, but not the entire time.
