Great place to get away for the day and experience some of the beauty that New Brunswick has to offer. Many well-maintained walking trails, and lots of nature. The best part of the whole experience is getting the birds to eat food out of your hand.

Wonderful walk or drive around the park. Situated on an island connected to the mainland by a dike. A jewel of nature within city limits.

The Irving nature parks provides great ocean views and we saw some Seadogs in the water You can drive or walk, if able I would suggest the walking in the trails.

Well worth going and taking the walk along the boardwalk and beyond. Climb the observation tower and take in the views. Don't forget to visit the blue lobster.

Beautiful Park! Would love to return in the near future! It is suitable for the young at heart and as well as the disabled.. Just remember to bring a sweater as the weather can be a bit cool even in the summer.

Very nice large large with many hiking trails. Beautiful views of the ocean on one side and unique salt marshes on the other. Wildlife all around. It was raining when we went but we were ok with rain gear. Marked trails and map at entrance. Free parking. Free admission. Bring a camera.

We only had time to drive through the Irving Nature Park due to our busy schedule, but would have loved to walk at least a portion of the trail. The entire trail is wooded and there are many parking areas along the trail in which to pull over and hike to one of the beautiful vistas. We really wanted to... More

This park is very nice. It was nice to visit for a short stop in st John, but if I lived in the city I'd be there a lot. My family and I first went to the children's forest section of the park and played on the playground, then went through 2 hedge mazes (fun!). Next we drove up to... More
