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.

Part 2
Sneak peeks on our 50th anniversary of Resettlement, 2016 - Continuing the theme of Resettlement I meet a few of the Port Ann and Tacks Beach communities.
