Things to see and do

Arlene Collins Art Gallery

Located at 10182 Highway 209, Diligent River. Growing up in the country, Arlene’s love for art began at a young age, sketching wildlife scenes and admiring the beauty of landscapes. She was born near Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, and began painting in the early 90’s, first experimenting with acrylics, but preferring oils because of better control and a truer color.(Open by Chance or Appointment)

Located at 17 Belmont Road. Our museum features exhibits on the New England Planters, local house histories, family histories as well as Avon River ecology, and geology. Our guides and volunteers are ready to answer any questions you may have. If you’re hungry for more than history, relax and enjoy a scenic lunch overlooking the Avon River at our Café.

Valley Drive In

Located at 5934 Highway 1. Originally one of Canada's oldest solo screens, the Valley had gone dark when it's lease was not renewed. In an interesting turn of events, it was the local Lions Club that came to the rescue, and succeeded in obtaining a new lease on life for the venerable Drive-in. Since their re-lighting of the Valley, the Lions definitely roar .with continuing support from appreciative and supportive audiences. The Valley is open on weekends, seasonally, from mid-May thru the end of September. The screen is lit with double features. Admission: $20 per carload (covers all passengers).
