Woodstock contains many of the amenities of a much larger city like large grocery stores, big box retailers, car dealers, fast food chains, building supplies stores and more. Real estate, however, is relatively inexpensive when compared to larger centres.
The town is a terrific place to raise a family with its fine school system. Its focus on inclusive education is renowned around the globe. Children also have the ability to participate in a plethora of sporting and artistic activities. The Carleton Civic Centre, built in the mid-nineties, provides an indoor swimming pool, an ice surface, soccer and baseball fields and a fitness centre for adults.
Woodstock is the home of the Miss New Brunswick pageant, which draws a crowd from around the province during its annual Old Home Week celebrations. The week-long fair that has been around for over 60 years brings tourists and locals alike out in full force. Old Home Week, which is located at the Carleton Civic Centre each year, is now followed by the new Dooryard Arts Festival that encourages foot traffic in the downtown area with music, art and drama.
With great schools, caring people, an opportunity for post-secondary education, sports, music, art and more, Woodstock, New Brunswick is a perfect place, not only to live, but to run a business.
