We spent an entire day hiking in this park. It had absolutely beautiful scenery. There was shoreline, forest, and rocky beaches, with lots of beautiful overlooks. Saw a lot of interesting wildlife--spotting seals and a porcupine. A must-do for nature lovers!

The Bay of Fundy cools off even the warmest summer days at the Irving Nature Park. Great location to walk in the forest or to beachcomber - just be sure to check the tide schedule to make sure you have some beach to comb! (low tides are best)

We paid a quick visit to the nature preserve. Lovely walk out the boardwalk into the midst of wetlands. We drove the loop trail, but I would love to walk it some time--with plenty of insect repellent.

I visit here on a regular basis, and I enjoy it every time. I love the barbecue pit for grilling on site, it's perfect for picnics. The trails are great for walking or even going for a walk on the beach.

Irving Nature Park has so many beautiful hiking trails and vistas that it would be impossible to see all in a day. It is well worth going to and has trails available for all ages to hike and enjoy. The coastline is gorgeous and so worth seeing. If we come back to this area we will plan on at least... More

If you make it to Saint John this free park is worth at least a good four hours of your time if you enjoy nature and the outdoors. I could've spent the whole day here, but my wife and kids aren't up for such high adventures.

Pretty nice place to watch birds and do some nature walking. We went down to the beach and stone and rock area and it was great to see the formations. Will go for a run there tomorrow!

Went with my family and they loved seeing the wild life especially since they aren't from Canada. The animals are not afraid of you but keep a bit of distance. The view is great at certain points and you can pick a hiking route.

This is a fantastic outdoor activity in Saint John. This massive nature park is free and offers great views and a number of trails. Definitely wear good shows and bring snacks and drinks.
