Woodstock Tourism Class to Explore Saint John Waterfront
For Immediate Release - March 22, 2004
(Saint John, NB) - Twenty-eight tourism students from Woodstock High School will arrive in Saint John Tuesday morning to see first hand the waterfront development initiatives of the Saint John Waterfront Development Partnership. Heather Price, a teacher of tourism at the high school, discovered that Saint John’s waterfront development was mentioned in the textbook her class was using, so she decided to bring the class to Saint John to see the waterfront first hand.
“We are proud to showcase the waterfront plans and projects underway in Saint John”, stated Ross Jefferson, General Manager of the Saint John Waterfront Development Partnership. “Waterfront development has become a major focus for the city over the past several years and we want to highlight how waterfront development is closely linked with a community’s tourism, economic development and revitalization.
After an 11:00 presentation at the New Brunswick Museum on waterfront development projects and it’s importance to the community, a representative of the Saint John Waterfront Development Partnership will lead the students on a walking tour of Harbour Passage, highlighting the unique features of the trail system such as Fort LaTour and the wetlands as well as discussing Harbour Passage Phase II and the Small Craft Marine Facility at Market Slip which are planned for completion in 2004.
