“Like the wilderness right in the city.”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Such a great park right inside the city. You would normally have to drive really far to see wilderness like this. I was there with my wife, and our only complaint is that a lot of it is up hill. It was really great though.

“oasis in the middle of the city”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

With it's old growth trees and wonderful walking trails, nothing can relax like a stroll through Odell on either a cool winter's day or a hot summer's night! In the winter, I try to get to Odell at least 3 or 4 times. Whether on cross country skies, snowshoes or just wearing boots, there are trails for everyone (as long as we didn't just get 3 feet of snow!). In the summer, there's no better place to find solitude and peace than deep in Odell Park. Summertime access is even better than in the winter because there are trails that take you to virtually every corner of the park. You can walk around and never see another person for hours. There park is build on a giant hill so be aware that if you start going down, you're going to have to climb back up to get back to where you started. However there are enough access points at the top, bottom, and in the middle that you can choose to stay at your elevation and still have a nice hike both in winter and summer. Turn off your computer and get outside!

“A Phenomenal Park”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

How many cities in Canada have a 490 acre park smack in its middle? Not many, if any. Odell Park is built on the hill bounded by Smythe Street , Hanwell Road and Prospect Streets, on the west, east and northern borders. It is a complex forest with a wide variety of deciduous and coniferous trees, with a trail network winding its way throughout. The lower (southern) park of the park has public areas with picnic table and barbequeing. However, it is the more interior parts that really illustrate Odell's true gift to Fredericton.

“The great outdoors in the middle of the city”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Forest trails many of which are on a hillside so provide good exercise opportunity. Botanic garden at the top of the park. Picnic areas available. A great spot for families as well. Used all year round.
