Beautiful Scenery

The scenery is so pretty. It takes about an hour at least to walk around and take pictures. Make sure proper shoes is needed.

The early nature park is located on the west end of Saint John NB. It is an island that was donated to the city by the industrialist Irving Family.

Nice place to see the Bay of Fundy, on a clear day you can see the Province of Nova Scotia and the beautiful Bay of Fundy.

This is a nice nature park away from the bustle of the city. You can drive around the park - but if you don't get out of your car and do some hikes, you won't see much. We hiked the seal trail. The trail is pretty easy, most of it has wood chip mulch on it. The trail markings are... More

We went 3 nights in a row. The beach is beautiful and the rocks are splendid. The kids loved the children's section and we all enjoyed the maze.

We had come in on the afternoon ferry and after settling into our hotel and getting some dinner a local recommended this park, We had a little trouble locating it, I don't know if I ever actually saw signage referring to the park by it's name, but in any case we found it and am happy we did.

I love this park! Great trails, lovely enchanting beaches, one trail is rugged and rustic, the other is smooth and paved. There are grills for use by visitors and picnic spaces everywhere.

Beautiful vistas. Many trails, but the full loop is accessible by car, with multiple places to stop for pictures or just sit and enjoy the views/environment.

Stunning views and great trails as we did the coastal walk. We hiked through the forest and then onto pebble beaches to make a perfect day out! There are even gas barbecues that you can use if you bring your own picnic which unfortunately we did not. An ideal spot to get some exercise and get back to nature.
