Overview

The Living Beach Park

Eligibility

All New Brunswickers and out of province visitors.

Description

New River Beach Provincial Park is the perfect spot to camp, admire breathtaking coastal islands and kayak the Bay of Fundy. The beaches and coastal trails at New River Beach abound with spectacular evidence of the natural formation of the bay’s high tides. Wade in the tidal pools, search for crabs, periwinkles, whelks and starfish. Enjoy the unsupervised saltwater beach, nature’s panorama of offshore islands, fishing boats and wildlife. Gulls, Eider ducks and cormorants… large, lustrous-black seabirds nest offshore and along the two circuits of hiking trails.
Hike the sweeping cliffs on Barnaby Head or walk the boardwalk through the bog and discover bug-eating plants unique to the area and 90-years-old dwarfed Black spruces.

Or, enjoy one of the many recreational activities at the playground, volleyball courts, beaches or trails. Grab a bite to eat at the Gull and Herring, a friendly-family restaurant also at the park.

The park is located at 78 New River Beach Road, approximately 45 km (30 minutes) from Saint John.
