DescriptionThe fishing community of Grand Bank was named for the renowned Grand Banks, Newfoundland and Labrador's continental shelf that attracted European fishermen to the island as early as the 15th century. These coastal waters still support commercial fishing fleets.
Walking trails around Grand Bank offer a variety of sights. The Marine Hike is about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi.) and follows the Admiral's Beach shoreline. Nature lovers will enjoy the Nature Trail on Bennett's Hill. Both trails offer a view of the town as well as opportunities to view the native plant and animal life.
Self-guiding toursMaps of the Heritage Walk, which illustrates the cultural heritage and architecture of Grand Bank, are available at local museums and the Grand Bank Town Hall.
