We are Growing Again


Construction to be completed by January 2018

Kingsport has received an ACOA Grant that will fund:

  1. The construction of a pavilion at the waterfront to house our heritage signs;
  2. The addition of a pergola across from the serving window of Tide’s In Canteen. The pergola will give customers shade and a place to sit while waiting for their order.

Wise Owl Joinery is building the Waterfront Pavilion.

A visit to the Canteen for an ice-cream or a meal is a must in the summer. While there enjoy the view, walk the Boardwalk and take in a little of the history of Kingsport.

The Tide’s In Canteen  has a new look this season and is better equipped to serve the needs of all our customers. There is a new Accessibility Ramp and Deck with picnic tables for those sunny days and on those not so sunny days there is the “Tide’s In Sit In”.
