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

Carleton Park
A green space on the Northside of the city. Located along Union Street, the park is next to the Saint John River and bordered by Ducks Unlimited and the  Bill Thorpe Trail Bridge.  Large open spaces, with several elm trees and a superb view of the city, are popular for picnics and quiet strolls. Carleton Park is also the location for boat launching and connects to the Northside riverfront trail system.

Union & Gibson ST 

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
Wilmot Park was developed for the public in 1895 but had been initially 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. There is a splash pad and basketball courts, tennis, and lawn bowling. The Stepping Stone Seniors Centre is located in Wilmot Park, just off Saunders Street.
