Shediac’s Rotary Park (Big Lobster) Playground by the Sea

SHEDIAC ROTARY PARK PLAYGROUND BY THE BIG LOBSTER

Folks, we’ve got another amazing playground that is worth the drive! Shediac is a lovely spot to visit, especially when it’s to hang out at the Rotary Park playground by the Big Lobster.

I first visited a few years ago when the kids were toddlers and a pre-schooler; they loved it then, and they loved it again as school-aged kids. Me, I’ll always love a spot where I can sit and smell the salt in the air and listen to the waves lap the shore. If I can do that next to playground equipment, well that’s just about a perfect day in my books!

The structure isn’t large, but it has lots to offer. There are two double slides, some low entry points for little ones, and some great monkey bars and a wobbly bridge that our kids loved! One of my favourite aspects are the nearby swings, allowing you to look out over the water.

The dock was a big draw for our family, and the shoreline offered endless fun exploring and searching for treasures!

The Big Lobster is a major tourist attraction (it’s one of the largest lobster statues in the entire world, built from concrete and reinforced steel by New Brunswick’s own Winston Bronnum, commissioned by Shediac’s Rotary Club as a tribute to the community’s fishing industry) and with the village’s tourism information centre located here, it can get quite busy at times. If you’re not a fan of kids in crowds, this might be a destination best kept for the off-season (that is, not July or August) or early in the morning before things really kick into gear for the day (which, if you have little ones, might sounds quite a pleasant way to spend a morning, as you’re likely waking up before 7am anyway!).

A great bonus of this being a tourist-focused spot: washrooms! Also, the colourful buildings that house touristy-focused shops also provide an awesome backdrop for fun photos; I’m totally already planning a trip again for this purpose!

INCLUDING A SPLASH PAD

Of course, there’s no reason to stop at just a playground visit. You might want to check out Pascal Poirier Park in the Village (it has a splash pad!), take a drive out to Parlee Beach, or visit the Pointe-du-Chene wharf.

We loved grabbing a candy treat and adopting baby lobsters during our day trip to the wharf. The Écocentre Homarus Eco-Centre is a fantastic little spot to learn about the life cycle of a lobster and to see rare blue and albino lobsters in their tank. You can even touch a lobster if you wish!
