Make your life in Parrsboro.
I’ve shook hands with the place. – Andy Goldsworthy
In 1999, Andy Goldsworthy, the internationally renowned British sculptor, photographer and environmentalist, travelled to the Parrsboro shore to produce a site-specific sculpture. As the world’s highest tide carried his driftwood sculpture out to sea, spinning it slowly like a toy top, he remarked: “It feels as if it’s been taken off into another plane, another world…”
We invite you to discover the new world that is the Parrsboro shore – a place of discovery, inspiration, tranquility and community. Nestled on Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy Shore, Parrsboro is only a two-hour drive from Nova Scotia’s capital city of Halifax, but once you have arrived you won’t pine for city-life. “Nova Scotia’s best kept secret,” Parrsboro has long been a haven for artists and other visitors who appreciate its remoteness non-stressed life style, the beauty of the surrounding sea, the quiet and relaxed atmosphere and its unhurried pace. Be inspired by one of the most stunning harbours in the world we live in.
Moving your life and artistic practice to Parrsboro is not about compromising a dynamic community for a slower pace of life. Here, you can enjoy both!
