    The combination of world-class art and the best of national and regional artists is something I would expect in a mid-to-large sized American city, and beyond what I would even expect in a large college town. Not to be missed.

    Beyond beautiful. The park is well groomed and affords a wonderful stroll to see the stunning scenery views. I saw more large dogs here than any other park I have ever been to. (And that’s a few). There are picnic areas, a beginner disc course to play, a goldfish pond, kid’s play park and botanical garden on a hill that is worth a detour to see. Enjoy.

    Beautiful place for family. A nice calm beach within the city and a very nice trek. All amenities are there including life guard. A must visit while in Fredericton.

    Great spot to walk around and see the changing of the guard!! Lots to see and do in this area, its a great hub. Also watched some children's theatre activities here. On less busy days I liked to get lunch and read a book at a picnic table in the park. Public washrooms in the square too, and water fountain!

    Majestic Anglican cathedral church in downtown Fredericton was consecrated in 1853. It is built in the Gothic Revival style. I did not go in – it was closed when I passed, but I did view the interior online. The cathedral was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1983. It is the only Cathedral in Canada that is not itself a parish.

    The perfect place to sample locally brewed beer
    Out with a few friends I went
    Tried a couple of new brews
    We even ordered some treats from the restaurant
    Which were all very tasty & good
    The location is perfect
    Right on the Saint John River
    Quite easy to access
    I would have loved the opportunity
    To have a cold one and sit on the patio
    Alas, that might happen if I ever return
    For now, I'll cherish the memory
    While I encourage others to try someplace new

    Climb to the top of the light house and get a panoramic view of the waterfront and downtown Fredericton. Has a great Mac n’ Cheese Shack at the location as well.

    When heading up to the top of the light house there are pictures of the other lights houses in the area and different events that have happened locally through history.

    A brilliant landmark in New Brunswick showcasing exquisite Indigenous and other fine art works from across the province. Her Honour Brenda Murphy was most gracious.

    I trip to Fredericton would not be complete without a walk across the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge. On a hot day, there is usually a nice breeze from the water. The view from the bridge is spectacular. You can bike or walk and stop at the Picaroons Pub for lunch and a beer on the Northside. You will love our "good nature" in the city.

    My hike started at the Skyline Motel along the Lincoln Trail, past the Mosque and then onto Morrell Park where canoeists were paddling away. From there, I took the Salamanca and Riverfront South Trails to the Old Railway Bridge. (I stopped at Picaroons for a quick beverage and bite). Then it was onto the Riverfront North Trail where I ended up at another brewery - Trailways (Just my luck!). Stopped for a couple more and then to the Westmoreland Bridge and across. By this time, it was getting dark and a thunderstorm was approaching so made my way quickly back to the Motel, but failed to avoid a downpour. About 15 km all told. 5 hours with many stops on well marked and maintained trails.
