Township of Brudenell, Lyndoch & Raglan

Updated: 7 years ago - Created: February 25th, 2012

Township of Brudenell, Lyndoch & RaglanOur Municipality has an extremely unique White Water Provincial Park which runs through the center of over 60,000 hectares of undeveloped, diverse - natural Crown Lands. The Madawaska River and several undeveloped pristine lakes and rivers flow through the heart of our Municipality. We are also home to several thriving Canoe/Kayak and Wilderness Adventure Industries. Rock Hounds are never disappointed with their digs from the several rock/quarry mines established throughout our area. Development properties are accessed by a well maintained secondary highway network. The positive effects of this access is realized by the several prosperous, second generation logging companies within our Township's geographic boundaries.
