Winter at Trenton Park 

Trenton Park is one of Nova Scotia’s finest parks! Whether you want to get out of the car to stretch, take a break for lunch or perk up your day with recreational activities: Trenton Park can provide the experience you’re looking for!

The Park offers 6km or walking/hiking trails winding their way through 565 acres of century-old coniferous trees. A 6.5km (4.4mi) mountain bike trail is also on site. Park visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll (1.6km) along the prepared trail or stop to fish trout from the 3 man-made ponds. Visitors may catch a glimpse of the natural wildlife that calls Trenton Park home!

Trenton Park is a great location for family fun with a playground, a 3000 square foot family swimming pool and water splash pool for visitors to cool down in the summer months! A picnic area provides visitors a space to stop and enjoy food from the Trenton Park Canteen, open daily in the summer. Parking and washrooms are available at the main entrance.

Re: Off Road Vehicles

Due to recent damage on the new Trans Canada Trail & grass areas of Trenton Park, the public is reminded that the use of off road vehicles is prohibited at Trenton Park. This ban includes, but is not limited to: four wheelers & dirt bikes. This ban is to protect the Park’s environmentally-sensitive hiking trails, as well as protect the safety of all trail users & wildlife. This ban is in place for drivers of ALL ages and a fine of $150.00 will be enforced.

The ponds at Trenton Park are stocked every year in May prior to the Pictou County Rivers Associations Children's Fisherama. The Park does not continuously stock the ponds throughout the summer months. For fishing at the Park we ask that you follow the Nova Scotia regulations which can be found in the Nova Scotia Anglers' Handbook and 2017 Summary of Regulations. Anyone over the age of 16 must have a valid fishing license.

Trenton Parks & Recreation Office is currently closed. Please contact Town Hall for inquiries:
