Welcome to the Town of Arnold’s Cove’s brand new website!!

We are a proud people with a unique heritage and a rich culture. We are an active prosperous growing community of 1200 – strategically located on the Isthmus of the Avalon Peninsula. Being deemed “The gateway to Placentia Bay” in terms of shipping and refining, the fishing industry and boat charters or for just revisiting the resettled communities of Placentia Bay.

Arnold’s Cove being designated as a growth centre during resettlement was a stepping stone for prosperity. Having a strong local government, coupled with a people of great initiatives and a willingness to succeed, puts our community in an enviable position.

Video by: Mr. John Tolson from Oxford, England

"Some years ago, before it became a publicized hike, I was introduced to the Bordeaux Trail by the family who still own much of the land. I learnt about their own fascinating history, a little about the hardship and, of course, this wonderful trail. Over time I am glad to see the secret unfolding.....you will have only one regret and that is not taking the time to enjoy the beauty of the hike. So, for those unable to walk it this video is a small token of my appreciation to those dedicated to the upkeep of your hiking trail" John Tolson
