Irving Nature Park is a jewel in the City of Saint John. Road, walking and cycling trails explore the various natural terrains from rocky coastal to hill and swamp with their natural living creatures and plants. Greta place to cross country ski and snowshoe. Besides the year round admiration of the mighty and majestic Bay of Fundy.

I love the Irving nature park weather it is driving around it in the car, waking the trails, sitting on a rock enjoying the ocean view, bird watching, sitting on the beach or going threw the mazes my family and I always have a great time with each other while enjoying nature.

Lots of trails with different level of difficulty. On my way to Irvine Nature Park, I saw a deer on Sandy Cove road......just beautiful! You can drive further into the park and park your car near the information kiosk which is between the squirrel and seal trail. I went for a run on the trails which contoured the park, except...
