Welcome to Arnold’s Cove! As a newcomer to our community, this page can provide you with a variety of information.

Arnold’s Cove is the gateway to Placentia Bay and is home to the Icewater Seafoods fish plant and the NTL – IMTT Whiffen Head transshipment terminal. During the 1960’s, Arnold’s Cove was one of the growth centres identified by the provincial government during the resettlement program and received over 100 resettled house that were floated in from the Placentia Bay islands. Many of these houses are still homes in the community today, and the last house floated into Arnold’s Cove which was owned by Frank Drake is preserved by the Town as a museum.

The community provides a variety of services, such as the regional K-12 school, four Christian churches (Anglican, Pentecostal, Salvation Army and United) that regularly hold services on Sundays, a Lions Club and a Canada Post Office. There are also a variety of businesses such as accommodations, grocery, hardware and banking services, all which can be found under the “Business Directory.”

The Town has a close partnership with the Arnold’s Cove Recreation Committee, who provides a variety of recreational programs and events for all ages as well as activities at the Town’s recreation building, ball field and outdoor ice rink.
