Children will love walking in the two woodland mazes that are in the Children's Forest. This park offers bathroom facilities and picnic tables for lunches with your families after they have run/walked through the skillfilly designed cedar hedge maze( 10 -20 minutes to walk through). This park is on the left hand side of the road on the way to... More

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!

We spent the day wondering/hiking along the coast line of Irving Nature park. There were a few people here and there, but not very crowded especially for Aug. We arrived mid morning and were able to spend a long time hiking around so that we could see the difference in high and low tide. AMAZING!! This is a must go... More

You can drive any dirt road and see trees and the odd scene of wild life. You do see the ocean! The beach areas are nice and the look-out is impressive but a walkway out onto the marsh is not that appealing as this is where the city sewerage is dispersed to the Bay of Fundy.

Trying to get away fromit all while in the city? Do a small hike through the woods of this park. Think you'll be pleased. It's natural easy going and yet close enough to the urban area to allow easy access.
