How To Get Here
Located along the south west coast of the Avalon Peninsula amongst forcrested hills and rolling coastline, Placentia is approximately 130 km from Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital city, St. John’s (roughly a 90 minute drive). The most direct route from the Trans Canada Highway (TCH). If you are travelling from the ferry terminal at Argentia, Placentia is mere minutes, along Route 100.
The Town Hall is located at 17 Patterson Drive in the Town Square. (Route from the Lift Bridge – travel Prince William Drive to the Court House , turn left on Jubilee Road and then onto Patterson Drive.)
On behalf of Placentia Town Council and staff, I extend heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of former Mayor William Hogan on his recent passing. Former Mayor Hogan served the residents of the amalgamated community of Placentia passionately from 1997 to 2001 and from 2005 – 2013 but his presence was felt throughout the community long before and during the amalgamation process.
