We welcome you to visit with the most hospitable people on the northeast coast of Newfoundland. In the mid-forties and late fifties, Glovertown had an influx of people from the island of Gooseberry Island, Flat Island, Deer Island, Coward's Island, Braggs Island, Green's Island and North Island, all islands of Bonavista Bay.
Try your luck for Atlantic Salmon on the beautiful Terra Nova River, one of the largest rivers of the northeast coast of the province. Explore and enjoy the wildlife and plant life at Ken Diamond Memorial Park where there are 3.5 kms of wheelchair-accessible walking trails.
