This Geopark takes up a big chuck of southern NB with lots of different geographical experiences. Plan to do something else and admire the geography while doing it.

Pangea and stones from Morocco in New Brunswick, wow! This is a way to understand the geology and stone formations in a clear fashion. Better said, a complex concept in explained in a simple fashion.

Stone hammer Geopark is a nice place to walk around and view the rock formations cause by erosion from the Saint John River. There are very nice lookouts to view Reversing Falls.

Further evidence of the presence of Pangea, some of the exposed rock sources from far South America while others source from Africa. You must know what you're looking at or have a guide to show you the difference. Good for rock hounds

We stumbled upon this park by mistake. Very interesting history, lovely setting, they even have a restaurant there, which I was surprised to learn is run by a non-profit society. If I lived in Saint John, I would go often.

I was pumped to go to Stonehammer Geopark - the office is at the museum. Driving all the way here I was told that there is no actual 'geopark' the 'geos' are everywhere including Rockwood Park. It's not an actual thing.

While I recall geology in high school it really isn't all that captivating to me. keeps my interest for the time it take to read the information board. I could see a definite interest to those more geologically inclined. Park is clean and well kept...More
