Today, the park encompasses almost 2200 acres!

Your Start To The Fundy Trail Experience

The Saint John Horticultural Association is conveniently located in the heart of Saint John, about 80kms from The Fundy Trail Parkway. As the largest city in the province, and second largest in the Maritimes, it’s a great place to stay and plan your day trips. The Fundy coast offers something for everyone!

The Beautiful Rockwood Park Campground

Rockwood Park Campground is far enough away from the city, but only five minutes away from nearest the supermarket and countless things to do. The park is home to six lakes, walking trails, playground, horseback riding and fishing all within walking distance. We’re a great way to kick off your start to the Fundy Trail experience.

There Is So Much To See & Plenty To Do!

As one of Canada’s largest municipal parks, Rockwood Park offers hiking trails, a campground, lakes, a large playground, an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding and a zoo. Make us your centre for exploring the Saint John area’s many historical sites. The possibilities and combinations are endless.

Saint John Horticultural Association

The Saint John Horticultural Association was formed in May of 1893. A leading group of citizens formed the association so they could design a Public Gardens and oversee Rockwood Park. They began to secure other properties near the Park with the purpose of keeping it wild. Today Rockwood Park encompasses almost 2200 acres.

The Saint John Horticultural Association still manages the Public Garden and greenhouses on Seely Street along with Rockwood Park Campground.

We have a board of directors that oversee our operations in the Park and help make decisions on future development.
