Hi, in this entry, we will go over the beautiful, historic CBD of Rockport.
The CBD as well as the entire region of Rockport was heavily inspired by medium sized maritime cities such as Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Very dense, old buildings, narrow roads, lots of W2W buildings and very few parking spots.
A few overviews of the downtown core
The Burton Bridge, the northernmost bridge was constructed in 1898 and served as the only way to cross the South Rocky River other than by boat until 1986. The newer and far larger Coverdale Bridge
was constructed in 1985 and opened that following year. It is also the beginning of the H-30 highway, passing near the downtown core, into the city of Burton and heading east.
The Rockport City Hall was constructed in 1852 and still serves as the city hall today!
Another key landmark of Rockport is the Richmond Stadium, home of the Rockport Lumberjacks, an Aurylian - Country Rockport is located in - hockey team. The stadium can fit 10,000 people.
The Oswell Park can be seen as well as the main rail terminal in Rockport.
Stratford Street, the street going horizontally, as well as Casey and Piers Street, the two going vertically is part of the infamous Uptown District as the locals call it. It is dotted with clubs, bars restaurants,
and small shops. It's a popular spot for the younger crowd who are looking for a good time.
A bit north on Casey St. you will find many small and medium sized businesses inside very old buildings.
The main Rockport Library on the right and the old Post Office on the right. Both were constructed in 1867.
The Rockport Convention Centre. Built in 2003, hosted hundreds of events since.
Small shops in the Updown District.
The Aurylian Dominion Bank, the dark blue building is the tallest in Rockport at 30 stories tall.
Well, that's all I got for now! Thanks for viewing and let me know what you think!
Stay tuned for more!
