Park, Play & Spend the Day at Ritchie Wharf!

Ritchie WharfSituated on the picturesque waterfront of the former town of Newcastle, in the city of Miramichi, Ritchie Wharf has been a favourite attraction for both locals and tourists since 1991.

Begin your day with a tasty lunch at one of the park’s restaurants and relax with a beautiful view of the river from one of the patios. Or, why not enjoy a home packed picnic under the large shaded canopy?

Children will have a fantastic day of play in the nautical themed playground or cooling off under the water buckets at the city’s only splash pad. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket and stretch out in the shade as the little ones play!

Have a relaxing afternoon, taking in the beautiful view of the famous Miramichi River as you stroll along the boardwalk or maybe take a cruise on the Max Aitken with Miramichi River Boat Tours and learn some of the local history. If you have your own boat and love the view from out on the water, there is also a public boat launch and dock!

While you are enjoying the live, local entertainment that performs most evenings and weekends, take a break to get a delicious ice cream treat from Brandi’s Dairy Delight or sip on a hot coffee or tea from the Coffee Shop.

Make sure you take the time to stop in at East Wind Gifts, which boasts the work of over 40 local skilled artisans and crafts people. It’s a great opportunity to pick up a genuine, Miramichi souvenir. You are also sure to love the many paintings by local artists at the Miramichi Art Corps Art Gallery.

Come park, play and spend the day at Ritchie Wharf!

Currently the shops are only open on the weekend but they will be open full time beginning Friday June 24th.
