Description & Services

A beautiful place to watch the ebb and flow of the tide on the Avon River and a stunning view of a sunset.  
This area is formerly a New England Planter settlement. Due to the proximity to water, ship building was an important industry. The Wharf was divested from the Federal Government to the Municipality in 1990 and was rebuilt by the community for $13,000.00. In 1996, the Municipality entered into a lease agreement with the Avon River Heritage Society to allow that organization to develop a portion of the property. 
While visiting in the summer, learn about the history of the area and the wharf by visiting the Avondale Heritage Society's Museum.
