What a great surprise!

We stopped for some hiking after hours in the car. Stunning views, and well marked trails. Being off season, the main road was closed... but this made things even quieter.

First visit. Didn't have a long time to check things out, but the beach was very nice. Not too crowded. The road in badly needs grading. I imagine this is an ongoing problem as our "Saint John resident" passenger" warned me on our approach.

Went here today with my family. Was visiting Saint John for the long weekend. Great park with lots of hiking trails. The temperature was still a little cool, but would be a great place to do hikes and get away from the city on off days. Great place for some mountain biking as well I would assume. Would definitely come... More

Went to visit today after everyone suggested we see it. March is still snowy and cool. A good hat to keep out the wind is required in the winter months. We saw deer rather close, they were not overly bothered by our presence. we brought bird seed and chickadees ate out of our hands. it was really great experience.

If you are visiting the city it is a good way to get out of the city without leaving. Don't expect much at the park other than nature. Trails are well marked but most are fairly long. Good spots to have lunch and the car trail is a good way to see different sections of the park.

This park is very well kept, nice and clean and lots of places to sit and look out at the ocean. It's about a 7 km walk to go all the way around and you can walk the trail just inside the woods along the road or you could walk the road . The speed limit is low and most... More

We always enjoy visiting the Irving Nature Park for a walk and like that we can bring our dogs too. During our walks we have seen various types of birds. There are lots of different parking areas, tables, benches and washrooms.

At age 75 I still visit this wonderful park. Years past I walked, jogged and cross country skied here. Great views, wildlife and country atmosphere within the city limits. Lookoffs and grill sites are great too.
