The Glen, Drury Cove
Active. Individual. Open.
Between brooks, waterfalls, and creeks, these neighbourhoods northeast of the city are literally defined by the water. Marsh Creek connects to Courtenay Bay and flows into the Saint John Harbour. Drury Cove rings the Kennebecasis River. There is also an active quarry in the area. The homes that are scattered across this landscape are spaced apart graciously, and range from single family detached to small apartment buildings. Many were built pre-1960 up to the 1980s. It helps to have a vehicle in this community, but it is also served by transit.
If living an active lifestyle is important to you, this community has you covered. The Irving Oil Field House is here and there are nature trails galore. You’re also covered for shopping. Rothesay Avenue runs through the Brookville/Glen Falls neighbourhoods, and the east side retail area is nearby.
Glen Falls subdivision was first proposed by John A. Pugsley in 1914. As envisioned, the homes would house workers in nearby factories. It would boast a development park, large lots, indoor plumbing and electric lighting which were amenities city dwellers at the time did not always have. Some of the factory buildings and businesses from that time are still here today.
