As the provincial capital of New Brunswick, Fredericton offers numerous natural and historic attractions. Fredericton’s downtown district is especially full of hidden treasures that even some locals don’t know about!
If you’re looking for an adventure, feel free to speak with our hotel receptionist or manager Norm Boudreau. In addition to the spots listed on this page, we can clue you into to some neat sites based on your personal interests.
Experience the Fredericton Walking Bridge
Located just a little over seven kilometres east of Prospect Inn is the historic Fredericton Walking Bridge, recently renamed as the “Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge.” Using all-steel construction, it took two years (from 1887 to 1889) to complete this 581-metre bridge that spans the beautiful St. John River. In 1997, the bridge was decommissioned as a railway bridge and today is part of the city’s celebrated Fredericton Trail System.
We’ve mapped out directions from our hotel to the Fredericton Walking Bridge for your convenience.
See the Changing of the Guard at the Garrison District
From 1784 through 1869, the Garrison District was home to a British garrison. Many of the structures constructed during this time are still visible today. One favourite among visitors is the changing of the guard ceremony that occurs in Officer's Square. Visit the Tourism Fredericton website to learn more about this special place!
