Love it there in the summer . Lots of festivals and family events. Even in Winter. Harvest Jazz and Blues events , craft fairs, ice sculptures, free public out door skating. Great place for family and friends to gather. Perfect location downtown Fredericton.

It i8s a nice place to go for a summer concert all you need to bring is a lawn chair or blanket. Some lawn chairs are provided by the city of Fredericton for visitors. There is also a museum that one can visit.

When in town for the weekend, we saw the officer's review (which was wonderful), as well as two free concerts. There were many other events- we picked up a flyer at the NB tourism station in the park for a schedule.

Officer's Square is open to the public all the time. As for the museum, I do not know but you could check with the City of Fredericton on-line. Good luck and I hope you enjoy your visit!
