Berwick is known as the Apple Capital of Nova Scotia. With many apple orchards in the outlying areas it is a fitting title. At the town hall there is a large statue of an apple which reminds everyone of the important role apples played in the economic beginnings of the town.
Berwick is in the process of receiving a couple of exciting developments. A new town fire hall is currently under construction which will be a great benefit to the community. Berwick is also waiting on a new sports complex called the Apple Dome. This will eliminate the need for the current Berwick arena which is certainly showing its age. This project has been in the works for some time but enough fundraising has been made which should allow construction to start in spring of 2008.
