  • The Irving Nature Park is a beautiful location! It has great places to walk and explore. The trails are very clear and clean. Many of the trails are great for jogging and if you just wish to enjoy the views by car, during the summer you can do that as well. There are also some beautiful beaches which showcase the powerful Fundy tide. I highly recommend this exceptional location though I do need to advise anyone that the road can be in rough condition depending on the time of year.
  • Great trails and beautiful views! If you are lucky enough you may even get to see some animals. A great place to pack a picnic and enjoy the outdoors with some fresh salty air.
  • Great local spot. You can walk, hike, jog, drive through the park. Dogs welcome. The real beauty about this place is the experience of being in the forest while only being moments from the city. Great spot to escape.
  • Irving Nature Park is close to town and offers a beautiful view. Sit on the beach or go for a walk down the trails. Nice place to read a book or simply appreciate the Atlantic ocean.
  • Beautiful park. Nice little waves. Good places to sit. My dog enjoyed many smells there.
