Lighthouse on the Green

As you drive off of the Westmorland Street bridge onto the Southside of Fredericton, you will inevitably see the beautiful Lighthouse overlooking the Saint John River.  Located on a piece of land known as "the green" for its grassy shoreline, the Lighthouse now serves as an outdoor barbecue restaurant and ice cream parlor.  By donating at least two dollars to the Fredericton SPCA, you can climb to the viewing platform at the top of the Lighthouse to enjoy a stunning view of the city and the river. 

The "Lighthouse on the Green" is also the inspiration for Stewart Donovan's poem of the same name.
