Irving Nature park is an incredible place to visit - and seems like a new place when the tide goes out or comes in. The long beach is amazing - and never seems busy. The walking trails are well maintained and offer breath taking views along the way. This remains a favourite place for us to visit.
On some clear nights you might be able to check out the planets or the stars with a member of the local astronomer group! So cool!!

Very nice trails, etc. and great nature preserves, etc. All that is OK, but not the roads to the park. Gravel and huge potholes.

Fix-r up please.

Road into the park is rough, and road around rougher. Make sure you do not end up going the wrong way. Most trails run atleast partially very close to the road so can be difficult if you are looking for quiet reflection.

Something about Irving Nature Park always keeps me weary. Kinda funny how they spray glyphosate over crown land, but not on their own park.

Frog path was okay, hot and didn't see any frogs. Did see a seal though.

We popped into this park on a whim! It is a huge place! We went to the park, looked at a swim area, camping area.... We walked the trail for a few minutes and checked out some monuments... I look forward to spending a full day here with a picnic and hang out with friends! We envisioned our family from ON and NS coming to visit us and us, taking them here for a day trip! Looking forward to exploring!

If the weather is clear the Irving Nature Park is spectacular. The hiking trails are well groomed and well marked. If you drive through you have to be patient due to thick brush but once you see the Bay...wow. There are lots of pull-offs and often see seals.
There are a number of picnic sites, however, some are closed due to Covid.
Entering the park on the right into the marsh, was a rifle range used for target practice during the war.
Opposite, you have the surf pounding on Saints Rest Beach and a Boardwalk to stroll over the marshland.

We'd heard about the Irving Nature Park from others, and it came highly recommended. We went with our son, and hit Sheldon Point Trail along the beach. Lovely, and collected some nice rocks, too.

We came for a family walk with George the doggo. George loves it here. Great views and a fun walk through a naturally beautiful area. George especially enjoyed the beach near the parking lot / entrance. A little oasis in Saint John.

This is a good place to visit. It is ideal for relaxing and thinking. You can see the huge difference in the tides of the bay of Fundy if you visit it during low tide.

Uncrowded natural beach. Took fabulous pictures here. Searched for “circle” stones. Definitely worth the drive and time
