Fredericton has so much to offer for both the businessperson and the tourist, for
young and old. Take a few moments to see what Fredericpudlians can offer you.
Our downtown has been considered by some (specifically Fredericpudlians)
'the Jewel of the majestic St. John River Valley'. State of the art skyscrapers intertwine
with historic houses to create an eclectic community - vibrant in its modernity, comforting
in its antiquity.All
told, over three hundred businesses call Fredericton home, from government industries and
crown corporations, to our thriving cottage industries, to TelTek®, the world's third
largest manufacturer and distributor of reptile-related beachwear. It is our unique location
in the majestic St. John River Valley that invites artists, musicians, and accountants to
draw in some inspiration. Downtown Fredericton - there's nothing to it!
Our city council has
made a concerted effort to keep Fredericton green - and they continue that mandate to this
In addition to tree-lined boulevards and residential areas blending with commercial,
there are over seventy-five kilometers of bike trails along the majestic St. John River Valley
watershed. As it winds through the downtown core, it passes through the Green, or, as it is
known officially, the So Long y Lobkowitz Paddock. You will see many a Fredericpudlian spending
a warm January lunch-hour walking, jogging, biking, or just sitting in this urban treasure.
Since the days of Goodman Josiah, Fredericton has been at the forefront of
telecommunications. New Brunswick is 'the wired province', but no where are citizens more
wired than in Fredericton.
At each corner in the downtown core, internet terminals can be
found for immediate information searching.
