Parks and recreations

The municipality of Neguac offers a wide range of activities for all tastes. The Association des Loisirs St-Bernard Inc. organizes a number of activities during the year. (See Annual Events.) The Association des Loisirs St-Bernard Inc. manages recreational facilities on the grounds of the C.S.C. La fontaine.

Synthetic athletics track

Inaugurated in 2014, the synthetic athletics track is a new gem for the community. It is used not only by the students of the school, but also by all the citizens of the Alnwick area. The track will also be used for major competitions.

Playgrounds

Three children’s playgrounds.

The first is located at 1279 Main Street is a small playground with a slide, swings and playhouse.

The second is at the back of the C.S.C. La fontaine school (700 Main Street). This playground is appreciated by the students of the school and by the young people of the community.

The third is located on the seaside at the Ile-aux-foins Park.

Skating Trail

During the winter months, the Richelieu municipal park is transformed into a magnificent skating trail. The skating trail loops around the park. Strings of bright lights illuminate the park at night. The skating trail is used by the members of our community and surrounding area. Students from CSC La fontaine, whose location is just steps away from the park, take advantage of the skating trail as part of their physical education classes. Take advantage of this location for outdoor physical activity.

Arena Sportplex

Opened on November 29, 1991, the Neguac Sportplex Arena is used to serve the parish of Alnwick. The Sportplex, run by the Sportplex Corporation and its board members, oversees the programming of the activities and the smooth running of the arena. The sports played in this establishment are mainly ice hockey, figure skating and broomball. Also for those who like to stretch their legs, the arena offers hours of free skating. During the summer, the Sportplex is used for ball hockey and socio-cultural events. For more information, contact Norbert Ross, Manager, at 776-1820.

Culture

Centre of Acadian culture beside Native and Anglophone communities

Although it is located between the Esgenoôpetitj (Burnt Church) First Nation and the Anglophone community of Tabusintac, Neguac is an important center of Acadian and French culture. The 396-seat Théâtre Richard-Denys is an ultramodern multifunctional venue able to host not only local cultural productions but also performances from outside professional companies. It’s a comfortable setting for plays and concerts.

In 1988, Neguac was proclaimed the “Savoie Family Capital” to recognize one of its founding families. In commemoration of the event, the municipality inaugurated the Savoie Family Monument.

The Otho Robichaud historic site at 17 Otho Street was designated by the province of New Brunswick in 1994. On October 9, 2001, the Minister responsible for Culture and Sport Secretariat designated the site.
