What is the Front Street community oven?
It is a warm and inviting community space for people to cook, eat, and gather together in the park. A firemaster lights the fire and heats the oven, and you arrive later in the day to cook and bake your food.
Where & when is it open?
Robie Tufts Nature Park, 122 Front Street, Wolfville, NS
From May to October 2019 there will be at least one free “open oven” day per week where the oven is running for 4-6 hours; this will be a regularly scheduled time. The oven will also be available to book for events and gatherings once things get up and running.

Inspiration for the Idea
This is the Park Avenue Community Oven in Dartmouth. Ours will be similar in that it’s in the park, but a different design. Our volunteer architect is working on it and we’re working with the Wolfville architectural committee to ensure it fits aesthetically with the town.
