This is a beautiful park, well maintained. A 6 km dirt road loops through the wooded parkland along the water. We ate picnic lunch at clean tables and were surprised to find propane grills right there available for use. Spotted a seal in the water....More

We did not partake of the various hiking trails, though we saw them from the road and thought they looked fun. We loved the greenspace and the views of the bay. We stopped periodically to walk out onto the rocks (there was very convenient parking...More

The trails are pretty basic but some offer some really good views. You could also find some nice off trails for more alone time. It's a good place to run or walk and think.

Amazing park to see the rise and fall of the tides from the Bay of Fundy. So many areas to see mud flats to rocks that are covered when tide is in. Walked on beach but not a sandy area when the tide is out....More

Haven't been there in 30 years. Went with my granddaughter and her dad and my husband. Was fantastic and got some amazing pics. Would go over and over and best thing family on any budget could go as it's free!

Have not walked the park lately but previous experience has been that there will be a path created by walkers who use the path every day.

I prefer the main trail that has gravel laid on it mainly because I walk my dog there or do it as a run. But the wooded trails are nice too
