Brilliant park space in the middle of the city! Everything available here, camping by tent or by caravan. Lakes to swim in, playground for children, movies every Tuesday at dusk. Full service restaurant, canteen, bathroom facilities, canoe rental. Nature trails and you can even hear the lions from the nearby Zoo. Highly recommend you visit this oasis in the city.

This park is one of the nicest municipal parks I've seen. Lots of biking options, hiking trails, geocaches, lakes for swimming, even a cafe and a canteen. I barely covered any ground while I was there and saw lots!

Didn't have a chance to walk nearly half the trails here. Will be returning someday down the road for sure. Beautiful small lakes and variety of trails. If you like walking in the parks with a few hills this is a good place to check out. Very clean.

Very nice park with tons of activities. We just enjoy seating by the lake looking at the ducks waiting on a beautiful sun set.

I've had my bike out several times now. If you are a novice then make sure you swing by the visitor centre and get a trail map... Avoid anything that is 'difficult' or above... I learned my lesson. Ample wildlife... beaches. Lily's Cafe is a great little spot. Had the chowder and a naanwhich there. REALLY GOOD.

We visited the Fisher Lakes part of Rockwood Park today, and found it to be just lovely. There are cute little beach areas and many paved and rough trails to explore. All of it is free of litter and well-maintained. There is a cafe area on the small lake, but we were unable to visit because one of our party... More

I really enjoyed walking the trail around Lily Lake and that put me in proper form to enjoy the meal offered at Lily's Cafe in the fully restored pavillion. The artwork outside is very interesting. It is also a short walk to the Saint John Horticultural Gardens on Seely St.

I typically go to Rockwood Park with my dog. We usually park and do a walk around the loop and then head to the "dog park". It is a decent size enclosure - I do with it were bigger with some more trees and perhaps a pool for the pups - but it is something! When I am up for... More
