Recreation

FishHut RiverOur goal as a Town is to provide all community members with the opportunity to grow physically and mentally through living a healthier more active life. The steps we are taking to achieve this goal is by offering programs that interest all members of all ages within the community. The Town is working hard to maintain all facilities that are used for recreational activities and we are consitently looking for new opportunities to bring new programming and facilities to our area.

Stewiacke Trails

Looking to enjoy thechanging leaves and escape from the town streets? Why not enjoy one of our 2 trails: The John Crawford Trail & Stewiacke River County Trail? Each trail offers its own unique experience. The John Crawford Trail has a small 600-meter loop covered in gravel, making it user-friendly, and it also has a back loop that takes you through the forest! The Stewiacke River Country Trail loops around our Ballfields and up behind the Mastodon. There are many great views of the river, and you can often see eagles flying by. A lot of people have yet to stop down by the Fish Shack in Stewiacke. The Fisherman Association has constructed a short 500 meter trail that takes you to wonderful views of the river, and you can enjoy these views from a gazebo! What spot could be better to watch the tidal bore?

Sports Fields

The Stewiacke Recreation Grounds are used frequently over the warmer months. The grounds are home to two baseball fields, a soccer field, the new Sate Park, an Off Leash Dog Park and is the trailhead for the Stewiacke River Country Trail. The baseball fields are maintained by the Town public works staff as are the other facilities. The ball fields are open for rental from May-October.
