Overview

One of the most photographed attractions in New Brunswick, i.e. Shediac’s Giant Lobster, is ageing gracefully, even very gracefully, and we plan to celebrate its 25th anniversary in style this year (2015). This work of art measuring 11 metres long, 5 metres in width, 5 metres high and weighing nearly 90 tons saw the light of day thanks to an initiative launched by the Shediac Rotary Club. The Town and the Rotary Club will therefore work together to mark the quarter century of existence of this work of art sculpted by the artist Winston Bronnum. For more information on the festivities marking the 25th anniversary, please visit the Town of Shediac’s website.

The name says it all. It's a giant lobster. Busses stop & crowds climb on. Pure kitsch but fun. It won't take you more than a few minutes to take pictures once you've waited your turn. Pretty park sponsored by Rotary club.

OK. It's a giant lobster statute and nothing more. I certainly wouldn't recommend making a detour into Shediac just to see it. And if you seriously thought about skipping the Bay of Fundy or the Cape Brenton Highlands to see the Lobster, your priorities are...More

Fun place to see just outside the center of town. Giant Lobster that you can climb and take your picture on.

Not much to see except the lobster! As for things to do... This is it! Makes a nice photographic subject to send back home! This reminds of the largest axe in mactaquac in New Brunswick!

Loved the giant lobster. Looks realistic and the surrounding area was lovely. Would enjoy coming back in the warmer weather!

Dead of winter, no one around; the company you keep will make it an experience! Giant lobster. Enough said. 🤣

If you look on a Google map, there is a Shediac tourist information center right close by the Giant Lobster Park, and I think they could help you find the name you want for the Gift shop. Hope that helps.
