Review of Mactaquac Dam

Mactaquac Dam

Attraction details
Reviewed 28 March 2017

Not to far off the transcanada highway. A quieter approach to Fredericton. Engineering interest. Nice rural area or suburb of Fredericton.

As an attraction there is not much to see for walkers as there are no walking paths on th bridge itself but driving over the bridge is nice to do to the water cascading below the dam level into St. John River. So best place to experience the dam is from Upper Kingsclear. Starting from the body of water at Hillview street upper kingsclear. Waterfront Land is hard to come by here as there is not much if it left and if you are a boat lover you can get good sailing on mactquac waters as well as good swimming in clean water. Great attraction in the summer and winter if you like the outdoors.

A nice leisurely drive from Fredericton or go through Keswick Ridge. Either way, the scenery is beautiful. Campground not far from the dam.

depending on the time of year and how many gates are open it makes it a great view. little green space for those wanting to have a picnic. the other side you will see lots of boats and sail boats.

The Dam is a Dam, and carries withi it all of the controversies associated with its presence and function. However, the drive from Fredericton is very nice and it is quite enjoyable and relaxing to drive around the area and . Not a unique experience, but a nice change of pace and insight into the region.
