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

My little girl LOVES to go to the playground at Rockwood park just is perfect place to let her run and enjoy. It is next to horse stable so the horses are always of interest too. It close to a canteen, beach, washrooms and walking trails so you can make a day trip of it!

You drive through an industrial city that is noisy and enter Rockwood park and you hardly know you aren't in the country. it is peaceful and scenic. A great place for a leisurely stroll or an aggressive mountain bike adventure ride. A great spot for meeting a friend for a stroll next to beautiful fresh lakes or go for a... More

Rockwood Park is a great park for being in the centre of a city. It is on a hilltop and as the name implies it has plenty of rocks and woods. It also has several lakes big and small, nature trails, bike trails and lots of other adventures waiting to happen.

It has a campground, stables, beaches, play park, Day Tripping (which has canoeing, rockclimbing, geocaching, etc etc etc) and perfect hiking and biking trails for everyone; whether you want a relaxing hike/bike or a more challenging experience. You will not be bored with... More
