Sackville Waterfowl Park, New Brunswick
Sackville Waterfowl Park, New Brunswick

   Discover a wetland world beneath your feet! Watch a muskrat part mirror-smooth water in a V-shaped ripple. Focus your camera on the antics of fuzzy ducklings dabbling in the shallows. Listen to a sunset chorus of marsh birds, the eerie cries of rail coot, grebe and bittern. From dawn to dusk, the entertainment never stops at the Sackville Waterfowl Park, and the show is all for you.

How to find Us

Sackville Waterfowl Park, New Brunswick   Located at the head of the Bay of Fundy, Sackville sits on the edge of the Tantramar Marshes, an area famed for its enormous flocks of waterfowl and shorebirds. And right in the heart of Sackville, not five minutes walk from downtown shops and restaurants, you can discover the secrets of the marshes in the 55-acre Sackville Waterfowl Park, winner of Environment Canada's National Award for Environmental Achievement. Over three kilometers of trails, boardwalks and viewing platforms lead you, dry shod, through stands of alder and cattail and across broad expanses of open water, revealing the private lives of dozens of wetland wildlife species.

   The Sackville Waterfowl Park is a joint venture of the Town of Sackville and Ducks Unlimited Canada. The cooperation of Mount Allison University, the Province of New Brunswick (Dept. of Tourism, Recreation and Heritage; Dept. of Natural Resources), the Canadian Wildlife Service of Environment Canada, and many corporate and individual supporters in the realization of this project is gratefully acknowledged.
