Corner Brook is difficult to get to.
While on the opposite side of the island from St. John’s, Corner Brook is situated near both Stephenville International Airport and Deer Lake Airport. It is along the Trans-Canada Highway and is a stop for province wide bussing. As well, it’s a few hours’ drive from Port aux Basques ferry terminal.
There is only kindergarten to high school educational facilities.
In fact, Corner Brook is home to Memorial University’s Grenfell Campus, that offers degrees in Arts, Business, Science, Nursing, Fine Arts and more. The College of the North Atlantic also has a campus situation in the city, with certificates and diplomas in a variety of programs from Agriculture, and Early Childhood Education to Power Engineering and Software Development.
There isn’t very much in the way of arts and culture.
Corner Brook is very rich in arts and culture. With Grenfell Campus, there are students completing and graduating from the Visual Arts and Theatre Arts programs. There are multiple art galleries and centres that cater to various cultural events and artists within the city.
There is no access to nature.
A part of Corner Brook’s charm is its closeness to nature within and surrounding the city. There are four parks within the city and eight playgrounds. The Corner Brook Stream Trail winds through the City, following the Corner Brook Stream. Three Bear Mountain offers walkers a panoramic view of the City of Corner Brook.
