Odell Park
The centrepiece of the City’s parklands is the highly acclaimed Odell Park, renowned as one of the most beautiful parks of its kind in Canada. Among the many distinguishing features of this 400 acre park are a duck pond, arboretum, and botanic garden. Here, amid woodlands and fields that once formed the estate of Reverend Jonathan Odell, people find space to play and commune with nature in all seasons of the year. The park is also home to the Odell Park Lodge, which is available for community use.

Officers’ Square
Located in downtown Fredericton, on the corner of Queen and Regent Streets, Officers’ Square is one of the city’s most historic and scenic areas. It was the centre of military activity from 1785 to 1869 and 1883 to 1914. Now, Officers’ Square is a pleasant park for relaxing or strolling, and is the scene of outdoor summer concerts, outdoor theatre performances, festivals and other activities during the year.

Wilmot Park
The land across from the Government House on Woodstock Road is known as Wilmot Park. It was developed for the public in 1895, but had been originally set aside as a "pleasure ground" in 1860. The park includes quiet recreation areas where one can walk along the gravel paths, enjoy the beautiful elm trees and flowers, or rest in the shade of the bandstand. Children enjoy the playground equipment, splash pad and basketball courts. Adults can play tennis, lawn bowl, or enjoy a jog. The Stepping Stone Seniors Centre is located in Wilmot Park, just off Saunders Street.

Dog Parks

Dog park users are reminded to read all posted signs and to pick-up after their dogs in order to maintain a clean area. No smoking allowed, and no children under the age of 12 are permitted inside the fenced area.

The Friends of Fredericton Dog Parks is a community-based group working in partnership with the City. They believe that to be good canine citizens, dogs need off-leash time to exercise and to play with other dogs.
