I cant believe this beautiful little city has never made it on here!... I can't blame anyone as this is my hometown and I also have never posted photos..

Unfortunately I do not have any pictures of the city of Fredericton myself but I do have google... ;)

For those who are not familiar with Fredericton it is situated in south central New Brunswick situated on the St. John River. It is a beautiful town lined with century old elm trees fabulous old architecture and rich in history. It has a population around 80, 000 in the greater area but seems a lil bit larger for some reason.

Please feel free and ask questions or post and photos you may have or find online.

Cheers.

If you are ever out east you must check this beautiful town out :)

Thanks, TB. The city is pretty. I had many photos of this city saved somewhere and I remembered I posted them long time ago. I miss the city because I lived there three years ago.

I've been to Fredricton many times... very lovely city. I have family there.

It's made it to the forums once in a blue moon.

And by the way, that's not where Adrienne Clarckson or Michelle Jean lives who is the Governor General of Canada, but it is where the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick resides! ;)

lol, I’m such a loser :p


Well thanks for correcting me Oaronuviss, that was sincere ignorance on my part! Sorry for misleading everyone else also but I stand corrected :) (Could have sworn that was factual)

Thanks also for the positive comments as I must concur with you all. Easily the best city in N.B

I should be visiting late this summer and promise to bring back a beautiful thread …or will attempt to. ;) ….also going to Chicago in mid June, I’ll see you then as well.

Cheers.

I posted a phototour a couple of years ago when I just started on these forums. I've got new pics now, so look for that as well as Summerside and Charlottetown coming soon, with new trips and tours to come in the next couple of months of other cities in the Maritimes.

Nice pictures.

What are they going to do with those old bridge piers? Is it possible to build a new bridge on top of them?

keep them til they fall apart as far as i no. .... doubt they could build a new bridge for cars on them... but for pedestrians and bicycles perhaps, though that would never really be necessary as there already is one maybe 1.5km or so away.

There's a fountain on the second one out in the picture. They don't have it on right now...they were having some pump problems with it, but I do have a picture or two from when they did have the fountain going. I'll go looking for them, but I think they are in the skyline forum or something...I can't remember.

Wow, good set of images.

The maritimes really should be pushing a european model on our cities... we are alot like european towns/cities, except some gawdy projects that get put up and the lack of any kind of decent tram/light rail transportation network even though maritime cities are pretty big geographically.
