Harbour Passage, Saint John, NB, Canada

This is Saint John’s Waterfront and Inner Harbour, where the St. John River meets the Bay of Fundy and the water can be wild and mesmerizing to watch. Saint John is a working port, so huge and fascinating ships are constantly gliding in and out across the water.

Small or large craft right in the middle of the City

Saint John’s waterfront walk way, known as “Harbour Passage”; is an interconnected system of walking, biking, running, skating trails, lookouts, and heritage sites. Breath taking views are everywhere.

Kinda like the Wizard of Oz, cept - the yellow brick road is PINK :)

It’s actually a series of paths that connect parks, recreation sites, heritage places, scenic views and is part of the Trans Canada Trail. (Trans Canada Trail – an approx 18,078 kilometre (11,233 mi) multi –use corridor across Canada.  (hikers, bicyclists, horseback riders, skiers, all terrain vehicles, snowmobilers)

Take a ride on the Pony Express

The trail has lots of historic sites and signs explaining the history and geology of the area and there are numerous gazebos, benches and observation platforms located along the passage.

Cruise ships galore...

Saint John City Market

Queen Mary II docked in Port, nice shady spot to stop n read...
 Follow the “PINK PATH” and enjoy spectacular views of Saint John Harbour, visiting Cruise Ships, shop n dine in vibrant UPTOWN and FAMED “ Multi-cultural City Market” area. This is the City I grew up in and I can only say "Come Play in My City By The Bay".
