Grand Falls

Grand Falls is a Canadian town in Victoria County, New Brunswick, situated on the Saint John River. The town's name derives from a waterfall created by a series of rock ledges over which the river drops approximately 20 metres.

Amongst the main activities are the Grand Falls Golf Course, the Grand Falls Marina, the Museum and the Farmer’s Market in Summer. The Sports Complex includes bowling and numerous camp grounds. Most tourist-centric locations are only opened during the tourist season.

Tourism centers around the St. John River’s falls and gorge, which are located in the center of town. Two tourisms centers line the river, the Malabeam information Centre and La Rochelle. The Malabeam Center faces the falls and is across the Grand Falls Farmers Market located on Madawaska Rd. La Rochelle provides camping sites, access to the gorge via stairwell and a pontoon-boat ride that goes through the gorge.

Three main industries in Grand Falls are potato farming, potato processing (The McCain frozen food plant) and tourism. The town is also a local service centre for Victoria County.
