Pomerleau Park, located on Main Street near the train crossing, is nested on the lake shore connecting the boardwalk and walking path in Newport. The small are features shade trees, a decorative fountain, miniature mock lighthouse and benches to rest and enjoy the scenery.
Historical Walking Tour
The Memphremagog Historical Society of Newport maintains a historical walking tour along the waterfront and Main Street. Markers three and four are located in Pomerleau Park with the others spreading from the Gateway Center to Gardner Park. Ten sites on this tour will transport you back in time as you visit locations of historical significance. Pictures and stories (in French and English) of the past will reveal a world you never knew! For more local history, visit the second floor museum in the Emory Hebard State Office Building to see photographs from the 19th and 20th century, an Abenaki timeline and more from our surrounding Kingdom.
