Welcome to Rothesay

You will find Rothesay just east of Saint John, along Route 100, on the majestic Kennebecasis River.

Rothesay is truly a “community of communities” and a suburban retreat that has something for all ages.  Our residents and visitors enjoy beautiful green spaces, beach sites, wharves, hiking trails and many playground areas for children.  The commercial district offers boutique and brand name shopping, family restaurants and independently owned community businesses, including three micro-breweries (for the more adventurous!)

Rothesay is proud of its heritage (some structures pre-date Confederation) and modern amenities.  The Rothesay Common was voted as the “2016” People’s Choice Public Space” in the Great Places in Canada contest and is an all-season facility – enjoy a stroll or shoot some hoops in the warmer months or take in a skate during the winter on the artificial ice surface.  Visit the Renforth Rotary Park to take in one of the largest ice fishing villages in New Brunswick or stop by for a swim in the warmer months – early risers can sometimes catch the local rowing club practicing at sunrise. And the sunset views from East Riverside-Kingshurst Park are truly spectacular!

Rothesay is home to a number of feature events – weekly Summer Concerts in the Common, the annual Dragon Boat Festival, the KV Jazz/Blues Fest and Winterfest Winter Carnival to name just a few.

Our motto “Quinque Iuncta in Uno” (Five United in One) represents the strength and unity of our Town and the five founding communities.

Come see what Rothesay has to offer!
