  • My husband and I are both into photography so we spent several hours here. The marsh boardwalk was very pleasant. Did not see any seals. Spent a long time on the ocean side. Very tranquil and serene. 
  • This park has a broad beach at low tide and is very picturesque! Across the parking lot at the beach is a wetland that was beautiful with its grasses all golden in fall. Trails as well. 
  • Was a cute experience, visited the place and did a Pic nic to noon including them squirrels us accompanied in the lunch, was very relaxing walk between them trees and walking definitely if return it location to visit.

  • Always a nice place to visit. Very beautiful location. Only issue is the BBQs need to be fixed as some of them don't work any longer.
  • Nice, beautiful forest park along with seaside. Western area of Saint John that can walk, ride,run,drive and see lots of animals,birds and plants
  • From hiking to swimming, bbqing and bird watching, this public park makes nature accessible and family friendly.
