We love this lighthouse! There is a great GEOcache hidden here and once you've found it be sure to stop for a HUGE scoop or two of ice cream! It's so yummy and lots of flavours to choose from.

I'm assuming its closed now due to the flooding. I was a little disappointed as I was hoping to have ice cream and go up to take pictures. Hopefully it will reopen.

the eating area outside provides a very nice view! the prices on the food and drink are a little high, but tasty. Inside the actual lighthouse is very hot during the summer , and it gets hotter the higher you go up.

It is a small lighthouse and it can be seen from across the water on the Indian community side and you can enjoy a view if you go to their summer food and dance for the public

This is not a working lighthouse. When open, it basically is an ice cream shop and (possibly) a night club or place to get alcoholic beverages. We were there the 2nd week of September and it was closed for the season....having closed after Labour Day....More

The Lighthouse is a must visit place when in Fredericton. It is short walk from downtown area and a leisurely stroll from Delta Hotel. Prefer visiting it in the evening to get an amazing view of the sunset.
