Our Facilities

The Hubbards Barn is located at 57 Highway 3 in Hubbards, Nova Scotia. The barn itself is used for the Hubbards Farmers’ market on Saturdays from May to October, and is available to rent for special events. Our beautiful property provides our community with a green space and public facilities.


In 2019, the pedestrian walking trail connecting Highway 3 to the property was destroyed by
Hurricane Dorian.

The construction of a new pedestrian trail will begin in September 2022
making the Hubbards Barn more accessible and safer for all visitors. The project is large in
scale, installing an accessible pedestrian pathway with new signage and widening portions of
the current driveway, while preserving and rehabilitating as much greenery as possible.

The scope of the project includes:
● Rebuild a pedestrian trail from the main entrance on Highway 3 to the Barn.
● An accessible trailhead and trail that is tied into the sidewalks adjacent to Highway 3
● Install a permanent solution that ensures stormwater will no longer threaten to wash out
the trail during more intense weather events.
● Install accessible signage along the newly constructed path.
● Landscaping to create any necessary traffic-pedestrian separation.

The Hubbards Barn is a central hub to the Hubbards and surrounding communities. For this
project the Hubbards Barn Association is working in collaboration with the Hubbards
Streetscape Project and has received support from the Aspotogan Heritage Trust, the Hubbards
Heritage Society, the Municipality of Chester, the Halifax Regional Municipality, and the
Province of Nova Scotia. The work will be performed by local contractors, Moving Your Earth
Construction, and Propour Concrete.

This project is possible through funding from the Municipality of the District of Chester and the
Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of
Communities, Culture, Heritage and Tourism to develop and promote our cultural resources for
all Nova Scotians.
Renovating and revitalizing the trail for visitors to the Hubbards Barn will ensure this space
continues to be a central place for gathering, celebrating, and supporting local small
businesses, while fostering a strong and vibrant sense of community.

The trail is to be located at the Hubbards Barn & Community Park, #57 Hwy 3 Hubbards.
