Nice Little Park
Oct. 2018 • Couples
This is a pleasant little picnic park with a nice view over the Bay of Fundy. When we went there we were the only people in the park, although it obviously can handle more. There is a boardwalk that provides a nice view of the water. Lots of picnic tables and a washroom. It appeared to be free (although that may have been because we were off season).

Hidden Gem on the Noel Shore
Jul. 2016
Beautiful picnic area with a spectacular view of the Minas Basin. This park was amazing, we decided to travel on a whim on a hot summer day, the trip was worth it. The picnic area included public washrooms. Once you are finished in the picnic area consider a long walk on the beach, especially if it is low tide. The beach itself is made up of coarse sand and small pebbles which makes for an easy walking surface. Farther out on the ocean floor I would recommend rubber boots as the mud is quite thick and sticky. This would be a great family oriented day of discovery and hiking. It is very quiet and beautiful and I would advise travel on a weekday. there were very few people on the beach.

Great for a sunset!
Aug. 2016 • Couples
Went to see the sunset one night. They close the gate at the road at 8:00, but we just parked in front of the gate and walked in. It's a great spot to watch the sun set and lovely surrounding scenery.

Great spot for a picnic!
Jul. 2016 • Family
We stopped at Anthony's for a picnic between the tides and what a great spot, a hidden treasure really. It's a nice quiet spot for a picnic or just to relax. If you're looking for a beach though, look elsewhere. The beach at Anthony's is not for swimming but if you were looking to spot to say you "swam in the Bay of Fundy" this would do in a pinch. The big bonus was the outdoor shower to rinse off as you do get very muddy. Be sure to bring water shoes as the beach has a lot of rocks as does the water area.

Road Trip
May 2016 • Couples
My husband and I, went out for a Sunday afternoon drive and we didn't even know exactly where we were headed. We then came across Anthony Park. We decided to check it out. Since we both don't like the big crowds we try to find private spots away from the hustle and bustle.Driving down into the park we noticed the most beautiful scene of the beach and the coast line. We were all alone for about a half hour. It was breathtaking. All you could hear was the ocean! Absolutely amazing. The beach went on forever. So many interesting rocks to look at it, made it even more fun. I'm taking my youngest daughter next time for a picnic. It's one of Nova Scotia's hidden gems! I'm so glad we found this spot! 💕

A quiet hidden gem
Jul. 2014 • Family
My wife and I go there regularly during the spring/summer/autumn. It is a beautiful place for a stroll or quiet reflection. Located a 40 minute drive from Truro, it is indeed a lovely place to spend the evening.

Once Nature's beautiful beach site
Jul. 2014 • Family
Grew up on this water and it was an amazingly beautiful place to enjoy many of nature's creations. Sandy beach, rock formations that were centuries old. Fishing, fun rocks of all shapes and colors, swimming off the wharf on both sides. All that was spoiled when the Provincial government made a decision to take the wharf away. A new party in local politics had an alternate wharf rebuilt which was very welcomed....one bad huge flaw...the company that was awarded the contract of replacing this welcomed wharf, hauled thousands of tons of boulders to this site...thousands of tons too much. This has spoiled the enjoyment that a wharf is meant for. Can you imagine what this error cost, what could have been done with these wasted dollars? Go there and see what it turned out to be. Imagine what it would be like if it had been replaced properly. We had sand beach area on both sides...go see what has happened.

Gorgeous
May 2014 • Family
This provincial park has a red pebbly/sandy beach, wharf, interpretive panels, and a place to wash off - which comes in handy! Beautiful at low tide and for sunsets, perfect for picnics - almost never crowded. Great stop on the way to or from Burncoat Head park, another can't-miss along the 215. Good for kids and dogs to run around :)
