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.

The weather was amazing, so we had the opportunity to enjoy the park. The infrastructure is very good. What I think that was missing is some signs on the road pointing that there is a park. Good place to walk and have some food.

My husband and I spent 1/2 day here. Even though it was misty, we took out our kayaks on the small pond and also took nice bike ride through park. It is laid out very nicely and clean with a campground attached to it.

This is the best place in the city to go for a run or a walk with friends! The scenery is stunning; gorgeous woods and cliff side ocean views. There are lots of little critters around and there are many trails to choose from. A great place to get lost on the weekend :)

Excellent place for a walk, run or hike on one of the many nature trails. Only few minutes from downtown Saint John. Great place to bring kids to run around and explore. They have BBQ setup at a few places around the park. Fantastic place for outdoor photos.

This park is an amazing experience of eco tourism. View the ocean as you arrive at the parking area. You can park your car and explore on foot, or drive through the park and stop at look outs to enjoy the vistas these offer. There are different trails you may choose to walk, each having its own description, complete with... More

My family and I visited this park in July. We really enjoyed the hiking trails. Unfortunately we visited only a couple days after the the hurricane so a dense fog made most views not so great. The bugs were also terrible so remember the spray.
