Provincial Parks and Attractions




Trails Action Plan - TAP

The Trails Action Plan is a strategy to develop and promote the province’s trail networks and Signature Trails. Signature Trails are those trails located within the province and intended for multipurpose use, including motorized trails for ATV and snowmobile users, and greenway trails for hiking, cycling, and outdoor enthusiasts.

Trails Infrastructure Fund – TIF

The Trails Infrastructure Fund is a matching dollar program for trail development proposals that meet the provincial trail ideals of establishing a strategically located, safe and sustainable trail network, and have the greatest potential to contribute to tourism based community economic development. 


Education and Interpretation



“Get outside!” is a clarion call being heard globally, across generations, to connect to nature. Getting out in nature is the first step toward the stewardship of a healthy planet, building healthy communities, and supporting a healthy park system.

GetOutside! NB is a province-wide initiative aimed at connecting youth and families to nature using NB’s provincial and national parks and natural areas as the venue. The initiative is collaboration among departments of government, both federal and provincial, and non-governmental organizations, all sharing the vision of connecting people to nature.
