Irving Nature Park is just outside of Saint John. It is on a peninsula that extends into the Bay of Fundy. You can either take a few hours hiking/jogging or simply drive a lap around the park. The contrasting scenery between the forest of tall trees and the blue sea is something not every nature park has. Definitely a must-visit... More

Nice and peaceful outdoor retreat. Walking trails, walkway out onto mud flats, walk down to the water and enjoy the view. You can enjoy the island from your vehicle if walking is difficult. There are several spots to get out of your vehicle and enjoy the sites.

Our family enjoys the Irving Nature Park several times a year. Choices of trails (easy to difficult) make a great workout and allows for a scenic view of the bay. They have a cook-out center where you can BBQ free of charge on propane grills. The family loves this place!

Irving Nature park is a would-be island, connected to the mainland by a salt water marsh. The causeway that is maintained to connect it is about a kilometer long, full of potholes and borders on a rocky and sandy beach where the waves crash in impressively during windy weather. The park itself rises high above the ocean below its cliffs.... More
