Not only is this a fascinating location from a historical point of view, but it is also a wonderful place to spend a summer afternoon for a picnic.

This is a great place for both locals and visitors from afar. The setting here is very beautiful, great place for Wedding Pictures. Fun area for the kids by the water, Great for a history of the area that was settled by Irish immigrants. Tales of the trials and tribulations of those early arrivals to this area. A MUST SEE.

We never knew the significance of Middle Island. It is quite significant in Irish History. You can walk all around the island, lots of benches for resting; museum, gift shop and resteraunt on site; as well as places for picnicking.

Enjoyed a quite morning at the beach with our toddler. Found a sandy spot to sit and play and spent some time in the river too. Beautiful spot for a picnic at one of the many tables.

I grew up on the Miramichi and Middle Island was always a nice place to go in summer but for a long time it was just a beach with lots of parking and a couple of picnic tables under some trees. Then whatever "powers that be" decided to develop the spot as a memorial park for the Irish immigrants who came to the Miramichi, many of whom died and are buried on the island. It's nice to see how the park has been developed as a fitting memorial without it being an overboard, cheesy attraction. The informative, tasteful information signs around the site tell the story well. The facilities are clean and modern. The beach is small but pleasant. All in all, it's a nice place for a family to spend some time.
