Sackville Waterfowl Park

New Brunswick

The Sackville Waterfowl Park is on a major bird migration route with more than 180 species sighted and 35 breeding within the grounds. Pretty and filled with birdsong, it's worth taking a stroll around the boardwalk trail. From May to August is the best time to visit.
