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 12 courses containing over 115 obstacles, including over 25 zip line challenges, we are one of Canada’s largest treetop aerial adventure courses. As of January 2020, we were the number 1 ranked aerial adventure park in Canada on TripAdvisor!
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. With course difficulty levels ranging from beginner all the way up to hard, we welcome visitors of all ages 5 and up looking for a truly fun, nature-filled experience.
TimberTop is typically open to the public yearly between early May and late October, 7 days a week during July and August and on weekends in May, June, September and October. Weekday group bookings of 25 or more are also available by request during the May/June and September/October timeframes. COVID-19 Update: During the 2021 season we will be open 5 days per week. In addition and understandably, large group bookings will need to be suspended for the season. We hopefully will be returning to a typical season setup before we know it!
Our park and the trees within it are our foundation, and we’ve taken the utmost care to protect them. Platforms carefully squeeze against the tree bark and are 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.
