Year-round, visitors can enjoy accessible trails and natural landscapes along the Petitcodiac River.
Visitors to Riverfront Park enjoy walking, running, and cycling along the banks of the Petitcodiac, one of Canada’s most unique rivers. Five kilometres of paved and gravel trails connect Moncton’s downtown to neighbouring communities of Dieppe and Riverview. Points of interest include Bore Park, natural landscapes, skateboard park, sports fields and commemorative monuments. The trail passes Treitz Haus, Moncton’s oldest building, that houses a Visitor Information Centre. In summer, Riverfront Park is a community gathering spot for festivals such as Canada Day celebrations. In winter, trail sections are cleared for walking and running.
The Petitcodiac River sees tidal changes twice daily. Along its banks, visitors can witness what is considered one of the most impressive Tidal Bores in the world. Check our the Tidal Bore schedule and visit today!
