This is a nice spot to visit if you need a break from driving. There is a small playground for kids, a washroom and an information center that is well supplied with local travel information. The staff is helpful. There are some shops along the edge of the park that are aimed at tourists and have all sorts of souvenirs.... More

This was a very relaxing place to take photos and browse in the shops and sit on adult swings while the grand-children played on the slide.

Tourists seemed to love this place, taking pictures on the World's Largest Lobster -- like a lobstrocity out of a Stephen King novel. Several trinket shops dot the shore of the lake, providing souvenirs to mark the occasion.

Quick stop. The shops are very tourist oriented. Nice place to stop for a picnic if you are going through the area.

Everyone seemed to enjoy having their picture taken in front of this Shediac Icon. Great spot along the water to enjoy a break.

This little park-ette has a few local boutique shops and some grass to walk around on, but the main attraction is the giant lobster, which is great for photo ops

Fun, cute little park. Giant lobster is fun. Cute craft stores. You can rent kayaks and Stand up paddle boards.

Brought some friends to the park. It was cold and wet, and many of the shops were not open. But it's always nice to be close to the sea. And, the lobster looked like it got a paint job. Looked nice and clean.

We moved to Shediac a few years ago and have made the trip to the Rotary Park frequently in the summer as the play structure is a favorite of our grandson. The giant lobster is the main attraction for a photo opportunity - it is a pretty impressive sculpture. I think they paint it every year as it always looks... More

Walking distance from Camping Parasol. Clean, bayside, kayak and paddleboard rentals, souvenir shops, and photo ops. Good tourist info as well. Easy parking.
