Fort Point LaHave Museum

Fort Point LaHave Museum

Location: Beaches & Artisans

The First Capital of all of New France from 1632 - 1636.

Before beginning your walk on beautiful Fort Point, imagine that today’s date is May 8, 1604. Look southwest across Dublin Bay toward the Atlantic Ocean. Beyond the islands you may see the good ship Le Don de Dieu as it drops anchor for the first time in the New World. Samuel de Champlain, the man who would change Europe’s understanding of this vast continent, stands on the foredeck sketching the first of his famous maps. Do you see him waving to you?

Church Lake Access Site

Church Lake Access Site

Location: Maple Syrup & Christmas Trees

The site is located at 311 Newburne Road, Newburne.  25 minutes from Blockhouse north on the Cornwall rd.  The Church Lake Public Access site includes a parking lot for 3- 6 vehicles, a dock and boat put-in for canoes, kayaks and small fishing boats. The lake is too shallow for big boats.  The dock is wheelchair accessible.  Research has shown that spending time outdoors helps to decrease stress, increase creativity, lower blood pressure and overall helps us to relax. The Municipality offers a number of outdoor opportunities for residents and visitors alike and are excited to be providing another outdoor opportunity at Church Lake.
  “Nature is our ultimate utopia: It refreshes us, inspires us, even heals us.” 
  For more information on the Church Lake Public Access site, please call the District of Lunenburg Recreation Department at 902-541-1343 or visit our website at www.modl.ca.
