We brought a picnic lunch and spent a couple of hours in the park. We hiked to the observation tower/deck and then went to the playground area. The maze was fun and the playground had picnic tables with a little pavilion. If I didn't have kids (who aren't too into hiking) I would have liked to explore more of the... More

This is a good urban park with beaches and hiking. If you want a break from urban St John, but don't want to leave the immediate area this is a great choice. An excellent respite close to the highway, but not really representative of the superb natural beauty of the area only a short distance outside of the city.

I cannot believe that my family just discovered this place! This park is absolutely gorgeous and it is completely free. There are lots of trails to hike, a nice place to swim, and an amazing playground/maze area.

Absolutely beautiful park with hiking trails. We went on an overcast, rainy day but still had a blast. Approximately 3-4 mi. hiking and exploring around the grounds. SO glad we tried this out. Will not be disappointed.

Several hiking trails ranging from beginner to medium difficulty. By going in the summer you can see the diversity the New Brunswick landscape has to offer. Park is free to go to and a great active place to be.

Irving Nature Park is the greatest place! You can hike as much as you want. You can bike. You can stay in the car and pull over for beautiful views. You can walk on a beach or look down from cliffs. You can see flora and fauna. Free!!

Peaceful and scenic. Just 10 min away driving distance from Hilton hotel in Saint John. 10 min here will make you feel rested and rejuvenated. Must visit!!!

This spot had it all for a mediocre biker. The hills and valleys were all about equal, I am no pro, so this was just challenging enough for me. I like that when we went on Saturday morning, cars were not permitted before noon on the road so we could bike without much concern. We rode the trail twice...we stopped... More
