Get Outside to New Brunswick’s Parks this Summer

Mount Carleton Provincial Park, New Brunswick Canada

Posted on May 7, 2014 

It’s a rite of passage, with the coming of spring, when most of our 9 Provincial Parks open and campers who have been inside all winter, dust off the canvas and head for a park! 

Each one of our parks offers a uniquely different experience. Whether you’d like to listen to ocean as you go to sleep, sink your toes in the sand or breathe in the great outdoors from a higher elevation – we have the park for you. Please check each individual park’s page for the open and close dates and activities. 

If you just need a jump start and a reason to get going, In motion Parks & Trails Day on Sunday June 1 could be the perfect solution. Community walks, interpretive nature hikes, cycling events and more activities will be held simultaneously in communities across New Brunswick to celebrate In motion, June is Recreation and Parks Month and International Trails Day. 

Fundy National Park will be hosting its Festival of Nature June 6 to June 8, 2014, 3 days of nature exploration, fun and learning amongst fog forests and Fundy tides. 

No question, whether you like to push yourself to the limit or just enjoy the outdoors and want to go for a hike, bike or a canoe, we’ve got the terrain for you. Plan to hike the scenic trails at Mount Carleton because hiking is a must-do at this provincial park. On a clear day, from the top of the Maritimes’ highest mountain, you can see 10 million trees. 

Whether you are just beginning to ride, or are an adrenaline-seeker, you are sure to have an epic day riding the trails at Sugarloaf Bike Park. The bike park, Atlantic Canada’s only lift-serviced with trails from beginner to expert, kicks off the summer on June 13. 

We really want to help you Get Outside! NB – so much so we’ve brought in Natural Park Leaders who will be in our provincial parks all summer, planning lots of activities for you and your family.
