I frequent this park in the spring, summer, fall months. Sometimes, the winter months as well. It is so close within the city. It is well sheltered from the wind. Great place to run, walk, picnic, enjoy the beach.

Great place to experience the "wild side" of the Bay of Fundy so close to an urban center. Great access throughout via trails, various parking lots, and roadway system. Highly recommend as a place to just relax, seek quiet, get some fresh air and exercise,...More

Have not walked the park lately but previous experience has been that there will be a path created by walkers who use the path every day.
