Glooscap Landing is a highway retail business centre located at Exit 8A on Highway 101 in Kings County, Nova Scotia. The 26-acre plot of land is entrenched in the history and legends of Glooscap, a Mi’kmaq spiritual leader. Throughout history this region has been an attraction for tourists and locals interested in agriculture, sea tides, and the cultures of the Acadians and Mi’kmaw people. The purpose of Glooscap Landing is to create more employment, resources, and general economic prosperity to Glooscap and the surrounding communities.
Phase two of the project will include a market at Glooscap Landing, and will include retail
opportunities for a seafood outlet, a bistro, along with local foods and crafts. Future development of phase two will also include accommodations and a retail business centre.
Though the use of a cultural centre and open air museum, phase three of Glooscap Landing will be designed to attract and educate visitors on the Mi’kmaq, Acadian, African Canadian, along with the other diverse cultures that make up the mosaic of the Annapolis Valley.
