    A vibrant busy place to check out local goods and foods. Typically very busy and somewhat pricey but interesting to walk through.

    A beautiful park in the middle of Fredericton. Perfect for a hike of an hour or so as well as outdoor play time with the family.

    Wow! What a day at the Sports Hall of Fame. Had the chance to meet NHL Goalie, Jake Allen, wrestle with a national champion outside, play on the sports simulator, and learn all about the history of New Brunswick sport! I didn’t know that Ron Turcotte, Willie O’Ree, and many other Canadian sport icons were from the province.

    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...

    Science East is in a building with an interesting history. There is not an abundance of exhibits. Yet they are interesting. Adults visiting without children can spend up to one and a half hours at the museum. Due to the hands on exhibits groups with children can stay longer.

    Lots of vendors with a variety of items for sale and a great selection of food trucks. It makes for a nice stroll by the river and an easy way to have dinner .

    Nice walk around the lake. Wide trails, clean and well indicated. Nice little beach too! Dogs allowed too!

    We came here after dinner since it was a stop on the city's geocaching tour. It was a nice place to stroll to and we loved learning about the barracks' history. The geocache was hidden in a clever place!

    They have the same stores as many other malls I've been to, but their selections and clothing styles all vary so it's always a pleasant surprise. Nice to stop in and look around when you're in the area (only if you like shopping of course).

    I visited here, after attending the opening sessions of Indigenous Peoples Day, at the Legislative Assembly Building, downtown. There are numerous small gardens and various trails, both along the river and in wooded areas of the park. It is across the street from the Town Plat, so elements of Fredericton's history may be gleaned here.

    A group of 6 of us (all adults) did the Great Fredericton Outdoor Escape. We had a great time walking around downtown and solving the puzzles. Highly recommend if you have a group of friends who love games and are looking for something new to try.

    The Botanical Garden was well maintained although not many plants were blooming at the time of our visit which we expected. The trails are lovely. It was very hard to find as the Fredericton driving tour booklet had us park almost a kilometre away and walk. There is a parking lot right at the entrance.

    I've been to this market several times, mainly for lunch. There is such a lovely variety of ethnic foods. My favourite happens to be the yummy Ethiopian cuisine . . . the combo is good, complete with injera (spongy flat bread) with which to eat the food instead of utensils.

    My sister was with me today and I was concerned there might not be any gluten-free options for her, but NO WORRIES, there were at least 4 vendors with GF meal options. She enjoyed her Sri Lanken butter chicken on Jasmine rice, and I enjoyed my usual Ethiopian meal.

    Already looking forward to our next visit!

    Went here to see a Star is Born. Tickets were easy to get using the kiosk so you didn't have to wait in line. Machine would not scan the Scene card and you had to manually key in your number. I saw a few people just not bother because it wasn't working properly so they lost the scene points. I found the Theatre we were in kind of small and with the low back chairs where a lot of places have higher back chairs now. They were decently comfortable though. We did not have any of the concessions so I can't comment on that. The lights on the side of the room are very bright waiting for the movie to start and when the movie starts the volume is extremely loud until you get adjusted to it. It almost seemed like you wouldn't be able to stay it was so loud but then it was adjusted. Great movie and a fun time out with friends.

    The treeGo is exactly as advertised, great fun for all ages, as all, a great challenge for those looking for that neck adventure.

    The staff? They’re not even employees. If TreeGo was heaven, they would be heavens angles as they watch over your safety, Their benevolence eminence washes over you as you step through their gates.

    All in all, it’s worth the price of admission, 10/10 will go again.
