King's Square is a beautiful piece of historic Saint John, located right next to the Saint John Market. Grab a coffee from Java Moose and a donut from Uptown Donuts (or maybe a sandwich from Jeremiah's Deli!) and take a stroll through the lovely square.

This park is across from the City Market and has a unique two story bandstand. Be sure to look for the statue on the street closest to the City Market

It is a city park right in the middle of Saint John Downtown (and across the street from City Market). It is nice but really nothing special.

Lovely square with a lot of history. The walk ways are in the shape of the British flag. We saw from the hop on hop off bus so I did not walk through the park

Kings square is a small little park in the middle of town. A very small Canadian version of Central Park. It’s a nice place to sit down and watch all the tourists buzz around while resting your legs or eating a picnic lunch.

A nice green space to relax in, with nice floors, interesting statues and monuments, and a 2-story bandstand (which we have never seen before or since).
