With over 25 kilometres of multi-purpose trails - great for mountain biking and hiking - Rockwood Park is absolutely a destination. The trails are well-marked. Generally speaking they require more than a beginner level of skill due to sections of roots and rockiness that will challenge intermediate level riders.

Huge part only 15 minutes from downtown Saint John. Has a beautiful lake where you can rent kayaks/canoes/SUP (Lily Lake - right at the entrance), small lake beaches, hiking trails and a good visitors centre. The visitors centre is inside the park past the Lily Lake pavillion, so make sure you stop there to get a map of the park... More

I have lived in Saint John all my life and Rockwood Park was an integral part of my childhood. The park has always been clean and well kept and there are so many hiking trails you could easily hike all day. Every trail in the park has a new and beautiful view and the variety of terrain is a fun... More

I enjoy this park when in the city on business. There are nice hiking trails and ponds where you can sit and watch wildlife. Very nice park in an otherwise urban city.

If visiting St. John, Rockwood Park is a must. The walk around Lily Lake takes about 25 minutes but really worth it. Since you have worked up an appetite it is a must to enjoy the varied home cooked food at Lily's Cafe which overlooks the lake. Continue past Lilly Cafe and there are other beautiful trails that bring you... More

I have recently started walking in this area for exercise. I have lived in this area for over 50 yrs and never noticed how beautiful the sights are from this area. The newly lit paths are absolutely great and the scenery from some of these areas are breath taking. The only downfall is there is not a lot of signage... More

Rockwood Park is an awesome place to take a walk in nature, the only drawback that I noticed was all the dog poop. Some of it was even in the middle of the walking path. People need to clean up after their pets, as their are numerous cans to dispense with it and bags as well.
