I had been waiting to bring Little Dude to this park for months since it is located directly across the street from the best little ice cream shop! It’s about a 45 minute drive from where we live, but the soft serve dipped cones are more than worth the driving distance; not to mention there is a pretty great playground with multiple structures, swings, beach access and a splash pad. Little Dude has since nick named this playground “The Ice Cream Park”.
Little Dude enjoyed both structures but the smaller of the two was perfect for his size (at 2.5 years old)
The splash wasn’t in operation yet since it was still early spring, but it looks like a great (and new) facility equipped with a changing area and bathrooms nearby.
The view from the Inch Arran park is pretty spectacular – if you find yourself in Dalhousie NB with children the playground is sure to be a hit but without children in tow you can certainly sit back and enjoy an ice cream cone and the gorgeous Bay of Chaleur views.
