This is one of my favourite playgrounds in New Brunswick! The view is spectacular, the entire waterfront in Miramichi is fantastically welcoming, and the structure just calls out for imaginative play!
The playground here isn’t the most elaborate we’ve visited in New Brunswick, but it has so much character & charm.
There is one main structure in the shape of a pirate ship with a fabulous sea monster alongside!
The pirate ship has several levels and two slides … and the most incredible views of the mighty Miramichi River.
You can find Waterford Green just off Water Street, on Loggie Drive. There are lots of picnic tables nearby & wonderful access for enjoying the waterfront.

The Pickle Planet crew, along with our friends, Daubneys Adrift, were gifted a pre-season tour of Beaubears Island & we can’t wait to return! The wonderful gem of a interpretation centre outlines the traditional use of the island by Indigenous people, the early days of fur trading and the role the island played in helping Acadian refugees during the Deportation, to its heyday of ship building. You can visit the centre on its own, or pair your visit with a tour of the island — which I highly recommend! It’s a lovely space, filled with history right back to glacial times. Our guide, Ken, filled us in on the island’s natural treasures, while Jack, Sam, Shawn & the rest of the interpretive staff helped bring history to life. Here’s just a hint of the fun we had!
