This park is on an island connected by a causeway, open year round with plenty of parking space. There are wide trails and narrow trails, level trails and steepish trails, mostly wooded but many vistas. On the landward side you can gaze across a marsh to the mainland, and on the seaward side is the Bay of Fundy, looking towards... More

You can drive or walk. Not a hard walk and a lovely place to spend an afternoon. Barbecues with gas provided. Take your lunch

Beautiful spot to stop and have a picnic and BBQ. Walk along the wooded trails or on the beach. Great spot to spend the day.

This amazing place is where I was engaged and everytime I go here, I love it! For anyone that is coming out of town to enjoy, make sure that you bring comfy clothes and shoes and also go during the day to ensure that it is open. Hands down one of the most beautiful areas in Saint John!

Great walking through the park with views to the Bay of Fundy. One of my husband and my favourites when we want something less rugged than our usual hikes. Also good for families.

Irving Park offers nice walking trails close to the city of St. John. In general, however, I would skip St. John and head straight to PEI or Nova Scotia.

We visited the park in November and absolutely loved it! There are so many different trails- whether you enjoy a casual walk or a more energetic hike, there's an option for everyone. Trails are well-marked and there are coastal as well as forest views. It's a beautiful spot and we'll certainly be returning.

Walk the Deer Trail, the Frog Trail, or the Crane and several other trails, you will not be disappointed with the seclusion, the view, and the scenic splendour of this Irving Oil owned paradise.

Great spot for a walk with lots of different loops so you never need to take the same path twice and there are various lengths depending on how long you have. Took our dog here many times over a two month period in Saint John and had a grew time. Careful of the porcupines though! We saw lots of deer,... More

The Irving Nature park offers something for everyone. You can drive throughout the entire park. You can hike through the entire park. Or, you can do a bit of both. There is ample parking throughout the trails. The roads are very well maintained. The entire park is one breath taking view of the Bay of Fundy after another. Every time... More
