Rockwood Park is wonderful any time of the year. Walk, or ski, the trails,swim, fish or boat in the summer and skate or ice fish in winter. My Malemutes loved the Park. I have walked around most of the lakes! Great way to see lots of birds and wildlife tracks on the back trails around the smaller lakes. I love... More

Enjoy walking the trails, excellent in every way. Horseback riding is offered and sleigh rides in the winter time. There is a restaurant here as well, a unique eating experience. The seafood chowder is made fresh for each person and not from a waiting pot.

Beautiful park, well maintained. There are easy, wide trials that you could take strollers on and also many mountain bike trials that are great to hike on through the woods, easy to forget that you are in the city. I have been here countless times and almost always find something new. I also love swimming in Fisher Lake in the... More

Very conveniently located in the heart of St John, Rockwood Park campground features full hookups, free showers, and a nice view of the city. The only negative is there is some noise from the nearby Canadian National rail yard. This park, operated by the city of St John is the best place to park your RV or pitch your tent... More

We were here in June and it was beautiful. We just fell in love with the area. The kids wanted to stay for ever.

I spent so much time in Rockwood park over the summer and fall this year. We took our dog there almost daily. What a fantastic park. Lots of fresh water for your puppy. We always went in at the Cherry Brook Zoo entrance, which seemed less populated and allowed us to have our dog off leash for more exercise. She... More

Great for hiking, biking & has a good road system to drive. The park has a campground, swimming area and playgrounds, rental facilities, cross country ski trails, and skating on the lake etc.. Also has a great little café by the water open all year round. This park is right in the City of Saint John, NB

This is a very attractive natural park nicely located. It has tree lined lakes which are well used by locals all year round. There is a beach area with lifeguards for the summer months and in the winter, Lily lake has an ice skating area. There is a nice restaurant on the quayside at Lily lake and it has an... More

Visiting Saint John and looking for a scenic place to walk or jog? Well Rockwood Park is where you should go. This is a little gem! There are little lakes with wide, well maintained trails around them for pedestrians. There is a little cafe (didn't eat there, however). There is a one-way road around the park for cars if you...

Don't miss the fairway, or your ball with bounce off the rocks and trees, maybe hit a deer. Lovely course, well maintained, friendly pro shop, reasonable priced. Bring lots of balls!
