Located just off Highway 101 at Exit 17, approximately 150km from the Halifax airport, Kingston (pop. 3,023, 2006 census) is the ideal place to stop and stay awhile. Enjoy a picnic in the shade next to our local duck pond or walk the fitness trail at Stronach Park and Family Fitness Trail. Walk, bike or ride an ATV on the old rail bed which runs through the village. Launch a canoe/kayak on the nearby Annapolis River or play in one of the village’s playgrounds. Kingston is just 20 minutes away from the World’s highest tides, Oaklawn Farm Zoo and a short distance from the Military Aviation Museum, McMaster Mill Historic Park and shopping mall in Greenwood.

The beautiful Kingston/Greenwood Information & Interpretive Centre located at 510 Main Street is open mid May to September and is equipped with internet access, a museum component and gift area.

Our community has a quality campground, fine motel, restaurants, 18-hole golf course, large supermarket, liquor store, gas stations, pharmacies, hardware stores and farm markets.
