Beechwood Generating Station

The 113 MW Beechwood Generating Station, located on the Saint John River 160 kilometres north of Fredericton, is a symbol of beauty and efficiency. The floral clock located here is a popular tourist attraction. The clock is 9 metres in diameter with a 4 meter minute hand and a 3 meter hour hand. It is run by power from the dam and is operated by a motor in a small room underneath the clock. The clock stands in a garden, which contains a collection of many native New Brunswick trees.
