Reviewed January 24, 2014

Walk the Deer Trail, the Frog Trail, or the Crane and several other trails, you will not be disappointed with the seclusion, the view, and the scenic splendour of this Irving Oil owned paradise.

“Fantastic place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Great spot for a walk with lots of different loops so you never need to take the same path twice and there are various lengths depending on how long you have.

Took our dog here many times over a two month period in Saint John and had a grew time. Careful of the porcupines though! We saw lots of deer, birds, and squirrels too.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

The Irving Nature park offers something for everyone. You can drive throughout the entire park. You can hike through the entire park. Or, you can do a bit of both. There is ample parking throughout the trails. The roads are very well maintained. The entire park is one breath taking view of the Bay of Fundy after another. Every time you turn a corner, you will be rewarded with another spectacular sight of nature in the wooded areas or the beach areas. There are washrooms throughout the trail as well.
