Trenton Park


Trenton Park Is Open Year-round!

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 pad 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.
