The little piece of paradise is such a fun place to go with family. Play in the surf and sand or go hiking and see the bird wildlife. Have gone here for years and never get tired of it.

This is a great place to spend several hours hiking in the fresh air and enjoying great scenery, and possibly capturing great photos featuring local wildlife. One amusing experience I had here was in encountering a porcupine who was walking ahead of me on the trail, and completely oblivious of me. I came within a foot of accidentally tripping over...

The Nature Park is one of my favourite places on the Westside. Whether bringing my bicycle to get in a couple quick laps of the road or bringing the hiking boots and a couple friends for a hike.

If you want a quite day in nature's finest, visit this Park. Great walking, and completely surrounded by water (except sand road to park). This park will provide you with hours of excitement and scenes that you cannot get anywhere else. Best of all it's "free".

We love to go for walks at the nature park. I always take my camera. There is always another stunning picture to take just around the next bend.

The Iriving Nature Park retains much of its beauty in winter even though the leaves are gone. The perimeter walk (Squirrel, Seal, Heron) of about 2.5 hours was brisk and well worth while after a great couple of nights in Saint John. I strongly recommend this place to blow the cobwebs away and lift the spirits.

A great trail for hiking or just ambling. Nice wooded paths along with beachside trails. Worth the trip

The Irving nature park provides visitors with a variety of walking trails or you can drive around the park. The trails very in their length, difficulty and views. Enjoy a walk, jog or stroll. There are Bathrooms available (should nature call) Unwind and take the time to enjoy the peace and beauty.

I've been to Irving Nature Park 3 or 4 times now over the last few years. As an annual visiter to Saint John area, I never miss a trip to this park. A great vista of the Bay of Fundy, wonderful walking trails around a little peninsula. Not too long, not too short. Just right.
