Rooted in the past, planning for the future

Wolfville, Nova Scotia is a community rich with history, culture, and a unique natural and agricultural landscape. Located at the eastern entry to the downtown, the Wolfville East End Gateway is intended to be a welcoming park space for both the local community and visitors that weaves together the many threads that make Wolfville a unique destination in Atlantic Canada. 

The East End Gateway Masterplan provides an overall vision for bridging the Main Street of Wolfville by establishing a gateway feature that connects Willow Park, a popular community destination, to surrounding local trails and waterfront access. The proposal aims to welcome visitors into the community with a new visitor information centre and gateway signage. The revitalization of a crucial waterfront property, formerly owned by Nova Scotia Power, also acts compliment a proposed mixed-use multi-unit development adjacent to the site. The Masterplan concept takes inspiration from local history. The concept features a meandering pathway that takes cues from the buried Mud Creek, which once flowed through the site; and the apple orchard, located adjacent to the proposed visitor information centre, interprets the agricultural history of the region.
