Always beautiful, clean, not over developed. Great place to enjoy nature in all seasons. Whether you want to hike the trails, run/walk the road or just sit and enjoy the views or small private-feeling little beaches, there is something for everyone.

Excellent place to walk or run just outside the city of Saint John. Beautiful coastal area!! Lovely views of Bay of Fundy as well as Saints Rest Beach. Makes you feel like you are really away. Great all year round.

Hiking the park for the first time was awesome. Chicadees were Landing on our hands! We saw...and heard...seals as well as squirrels of various colours. Hike as long as you like; there's a map of trails at the beginning.

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.
