In Newfoundland and Labrador, the term Green Bay commonly refers to an area covering the Triton and Springdale economic catchment areas.
But where IS Green Bay really? When compiling the information for this website, a question popped up. Where exactly is the bay called Green?
Looking at older maps, Green Bay is shown as covering Northwest Arm, Middle Arm and Southwest Arm (where King’s Point and Rattling Brook are). According to the Encyclopedia of Newfoundland and Labrador, Green Bay Island (which sits just north of Harry’s Harbour), is the dividing point between Green Bay and the rest of Notre Dame Bay.
‘Green Bay’ now really just refers to the region covering the Triton and Springdale areas. And this region is now known as being split into two areas, Green Bay North and Green Bay South.
Green Bay North consists of communities in the Springdale area:
Green Bay South consists of communities between South Brook and Triton
It can be easily argued Middle Arm, Burlington and Smith’s Harbour should be included on this website. They are technically in Green Bay. Those communities will be included in future.
The Area Known as Green Bay is Growing: Other areas in Green Bay outside the boundaries of towns and service districts have also become populated over the years. West Bottom (Google Earth), Hydro Road (Google Earth), and Burnt Berry Pond (Google Earth) are now very much like communities, although not officially recognized.
