Information Now open for the Season! June 22- October 14- 2020 
The Bay of Fundy is a special place. The Fundy Discovery Site aspires to celebrate the phenomenal Bay and the powerful forces that have shaped this diverse tidal and cultural landscape. 
As a project of the Municipality of Colchester in partnership with the Town of Truro, the Fundy Discovery Site is envisioned to be a central anchor and orientation site for visitors to the Bay of Fundy – home of the highest tides in the world! It will remain a place to gather, learn about and enjoy this diverse tidal landscape and special part of the world. 
Once the Palliser Motel, Restaurant and Gift Shop, the Municipality purchased the property in 2011 and removed all buildings except a small onsite Visitor Centre that was refurbished. Following a great deal of public consultation a Master Plan was developed for the site in 2016, followed by a branding process the following year which led to the name: “Fundy Discovery Site.” 
Several recent enhancements to the property include a waterline extension and new washrooms, a playground, landscaping, interpretive panels and a trail along the dykes. Future plans for the site may include interpretive programming, a pedestrian bridge and viewing area over the river, and an interpretive Centre.
