If you're looking to do some nature trail hiking, this is a good place to go. The park entrance is only about a five minute drive from downtown, at the east end of Bathurst. The trail is actually a series of shorter trails, but if you cover them all, you'll put in about 7 kms of walking.
I visited the park, for my first time, at sunset in November '09. The trees had already shed their leaves, but it was a nice (if not a bit chilly) fall walk. Workers were in the process of re-building and widening the boardwalks.
The trails are easy to walk. The 1.5 km Coastal Path would be more challenging if your mobility is limited, because it includes a stair section. Part of this path, along the shoreline, was actually under water when I visited.
Plenty of parking, and best of all.... no fee to access the park.

The main reason we went to the Bathurst area on this trip was to go Dogsledding...something my family had never done before. We weren't disappointed !
Our host of Teagues Lake Dogsledding, Bob Metzler, has about 75 dogs, many of them Siberian Huskies. After an instructional session about the do's and don'ts of operating the sleds and calling to the dogs, we headed out on an 18-km trail, which took us through narrow wooded trails and wide open stretches. This took us about an hour to cover. We each had 4 dogs pulling our sleds. This was followed by a truly New Brunswick meal.
It was a great way for our family to spend 4 hours, and if you've never tried dogsledding, I can say it was well worth it. You don't need any prior experience, and you can either be the musher, or you can choose to ride the sleigh.
November 2006 UPDATE: It appears that Teagues Lake Dogsledding is no longer offering their tours.

About 30 kms east of Bathurst, N.B., along Hwy 11, is the little community of Pokeshaw.
The attraction here is the picturesque beach area. During the summer months, you can do some picnicking (they charge a small fee), or take a walk along the sandy beach.
Look across the Bay to the Gaspé Peninsula in the Province of Quebec.
