TimberTop Adventures is a treetop aerial adventure park located in beautiful Dominion Park, roughly 10 minutes from Uptown Saint John. Nestled in a beautiful old-growth forest just northeast of the beach area, TimberTop aims to be one of Atlantic Canada’s premier family attractions.
With eight courses, including junior courses, we are New Brunswick’s largest high ropes park. Using the latest in continuous life-line technology, full body harnesses and helmets as well as being built to the tougher European standards, we’re also one of country’s safest.
TimberTop is open yearly between May and mid-November with special group tours potentially available by request during the winter months. In addition to helping local residents rediscover the awesomeness of outdoor, active play, we also aim to be one of the region’s premier tourist destinations.
From cruise ship passengers looking to work up a good sweat while taking in the beautiful views of the Saint John River to sports teams looking to squeeze in more fun while attending a tournament, TimberTop has the total package. We welcome groups of all ages – from birthday parties, school classes, day campers, and church groups, to any collection of friends looking for a truly fun challenge.
Our park and the trees within it are our foundation, and we’ve taken the utmost care to protect them. Courses are built so they do not damage the trees. Platforms carefully squeeze against the tree bark and are only installed at the time of year when the trees are dormant. Wooden blocks protect the trees from challenge and safety wires wrapped around them. The wood chippings found underfoot on our trails are deadwood that we cleared out of the forest and are placed there to cushion the root systems of the trees that tower above.
Dominion Park, as part of the Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark, is one of our region’s truest gems. Only minutes from Uptown Saint John, it truly is only a hop, skip and a jump away for locals and visitors alike. Like many others, three generations of our family have grown up playing on this warm water beach and playground. We look forward to continuing to work alongside Dominion Park’s dedicated and proud community as we all continue to enhance this amazing place.
