“Hidden gem in the middle of the city”

Hyla Park Nature Preserve
Reviewed August 23, 2014

We found out about Hyla Park while googling ideas for new outdoor things to do with the kids in Fredericton. Run by the Nature Trust of New Brunswick, this park is located right in the middle of the city, on the north side. The trails are accessible from either the city trail system, or a parking lot behind the United Baptist Church. Unfortunately, there's no signage or trail signs to speak of, so it's best to have the map from the website handy as you navigate around. (I can't add the URL here, but click the map at the bottom of the Hyla Park web page to get the PDF trail map)

Many of the trails were obstructed by fallen trees following Hurricane Arthur. Also, since the park is obviously not well used (or well-known), the trails can be hard to identify.

Regardless, we spent several hours wandering along, seeing dozens of frogs and giant dragonflies. It was a great way to spend an afternoon without having to go very far.
