    We went up to the top of the hill to see the view of Saint John. No complaints about the view, as it was about picture perfect! Anyways, I expected more from this site than just the view. Don't get to...  more »

    We went up to Fort Howe, but were disappointed. There is basically a block hut and a cannon on the grounds. Not much else, but the view of the harbour is great.  more »

    Nothing to do, nothing to do it is really a place that not worth the detour. You can see views of the sea in many other much more picturesque places! And watch the industrial commercial port of Saint John from this point of view is not really enjoyable. As more Saint Jonh is not a city for my taste. With this commercial and industrial port in the heart of the city. A little sad!

    Great place to sit and view the harbour. Could use a couple seats for people walking though.

    One of Saint John's best views of Uptown and a significant historical location. It's worth a stop if you've never been.

    This place has some amazing history. I go here often to have a coffee and watch cruise ships come and go. There is a ton of traffic here though. People driving beside you looking in and then pulling away. Not sure what's up with that. So not overly quiet, some may say it's full of creeps but I ignore and enjoy the beautiful views.
