It's four times the size of NY Central Park. NB loves their parks and this one is a gem. Plenty to do. Campgrounds, interpretation center, lakes for swimming, 18 hole golf course, horseback riding, a zoo and a playground. Rock climbing, kayaking and biking in the summer. Sleigh rides, cross country skiing and ice skating in the winter. 50 km... More

Wonderful park for families and couples. Parents took me here on a regular basis my entire life. Cross-country skiing and skating on Lily Lake and the Arches in the winter and long relaxing nature walks and refreshing swims during the summer months. A ton of great memories from this park which is still enjoyed as much today!

Over two thousand acres and incredibly well planned with trails, foliage, incredible lakes. This is so functional it will work in any season. Something for everyone.

Nice walking trails, nice playground for the kids and there are animals there as well which is entertaining for children. Lily Lake pavillion has some good food and they have lots of entertaining events year round. I wouldn't swim at the beach, but that's about it.

Looking for a campground, close to Saint John, while visiting friends. Found this one through Travel NB brochure as well as online. True to form, this campground is pretty much in the city center, but yet gives the feeling that you're much farther removed. Accommodates all sizes of RVs in a gravel parking lot setting, for the most part. Very... More

Spent 2 nights in the campground while transiting from Nova Scotia back to US. Campground is very nice considering its on the outskirts of the city. While not picturesque in the sense of natural beauty you can view the industrial side of St John. It's a convenient 20 minute walk into the city and the park offers plenty of opportunity... More
