New Brunswick Sights



Irving Nature Park

Irving Nature Park Review

The ecosystems of the southern New Brunswick coast are preserved in this lovely 600-acre park on a peninsula close to downtown. Roads and eight walking trails (up to several miles long) make bird- and nature-watching easy. Many shorebirds breed here, and it's a staging site on the flight path of shorebirds migrating between the Arctic and South America. Stop at the information kiosk just inside the entrance for a naturalist's notebook, a guide to what you'll find in the park, season by season. Tours are available, special events include off-season moonlight showshoeing, and it's an excellent spot for picnicking. Motor vehicles are excluded on Saturday before noon.
