  • I love the trails at Irishtown Nature Park. It's accessible year-round and is fabulous for snowshoeing in the winter. Great place for photographer also.

  • This is one of Moncton's better walking/bike trail park. There are a few different routes you can take for if you're looking quick or longer trail. Nice views and good place for canoes but no swimming. Nice washroom facilities onsite.
  • Such a beautiful place. Very photogenic and the fall colors are simply mind blowing.
  • Walk, jog, bike, enjoy the wildlife, and ... zero poisonous snakes!
  • A really nice park to walk around in for an hour or two (or snowshoe in during the winter). Also not very far out of Moncton at all.
  • Good variety of trails and views. I love wandering around here!
