Amenities in Fleetwood
The community of Fleetwood is named in honour of Lance Corporal Arthur Thomas Fleetwood who, with his sister Edith Francis and other family, settled in the area in 1907. After Arthur Thomas' death in the First World War, Edith Francis founded the Fleetwood Community Association (1923) and applied to the province to name the community in his honour.
In 2008, Thomas Fleetwood was memorialized with a statue in front of the Fleetwood Community Centre and Library.
Edith Francis has also been memorialized in Francis Park, located next to the Fleetwood Community Centre.
Fleetwood Community Association
The Fleetwood Community Association, which was formed in 1923, has played an important role in the development of the community.
