Whether you've come by land, boat, or foot, Downtown Trenton has plenty to offer all day, every day. At our newest showpiece, the Trent Port Marina, or visiting the serene Quinte West Public Library, you can relax by the water after a busy day in Downtown Trenton.

The city shopping, dining, and entertaiment area is a quick 5 minutes walk to and from the Trent Port Marina. Enjoy shopping in our ladies and menswear clothing stores, and for home decor, salon and spa treatments, floral, jewelery, and so much more. Dine out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or simply enjoy drinks on one of our many waterfront patios. All your grocery, hardware, and banking needs can be met right in our downtown core as well.
