Youth

The Town of Bridgewater aims to be a place that holds positive experiences for the young people growing up here. Bridgewater wants to be the town young people remember with a smile and good stories as they pack their bags for university, college, travel or their first job. Beyond that, Bridgewater wants to be the home to which people return.

  So, what's so great about this small town?
