A place to get away for at least a little while

A great trail for hiking or just ambling. Nice wooded paths along with beachside trails. Worth the trip

The Irving nature park provides visitors with a variety of walking trails or you can drive around the park. The trails very in their length, difficulty and views. Enjoy a walk, jog or stroll. There are Bathrooms available (should nature call) Unwind and take the time to enjoy the peace and beauty.

I've been to Irving Nature Park 3 or 4 times now over the last few years. As an annual visiter to Saint John area, I never miss a trip to this park. A great vista of the Bay of Fundy, wonderful walking trails around a little peninsula. Not too long, not too short. Just right.

You can drive the trail on a well kept dirt road, or you can take walks through the many different trails throughout the woods. Most of the trails offer places to sit and gorgeous views of the ocean as you walk along. Birds, squirrels, foxes, and deer can be seen. Many people go throughout the summer but not often you...

They have 3 different trails of different lengths or you can combine them which will be approx. 8km in... More

What can I say - breathtaking, beautiful, a bowl full of nature in your hand, we saw our first porcupine in arms length eating and getting ready for winter. Better than seeing them in a Zoo.

Have walked the road around the Irving Nature Park lately with my dog, Yogi. It is 6.5 km to do the road to and from the gate. Park is quiet with wonderful ocean vistas & beaches all along the road. There are a few passing cars but on Saturday the road is blocked to traffic until noon which is very... More

We went in October so the weather wasn't the best so we drove around. Lots of places to stop and see the views. We did some hiking and saw seals and deer. Very well done, the rest stops were very natural looking and clean. There was even wheelchair washrooms. A great place for the whole family. Glad we went on... More
