Outdoor Activities

Irishtown Nature Park is a municipal park situated in the urban wilderness of Moncton, New Brunswick. Spanning an area of 22,000 acres (8,900 hectares), the park is one of the largest of its kind in all of Canada. It is used for recreational purposes such as hiking and biking along popular trails like the red, yellow, and blue trails. In the winter, the park transforms into a skiing destination with several cross country trails. Another popular activity at the park is bird watching, as it is home to Purple Finches and Nuthatches among other varieties. Take a leisurely canoe trip out onto the lake and spot as many species as you can.
