Wolastoq means “the beautiful river” in the language of the Maliseet people who once lived on our shores. Built in 2004 by J.D. Irving, Limited, the park overlooks the Reversing Falls Rapids, and features a collection of statues of historical Saint John figures. Stroll Wolastoq’s shoreline – and you will see how these lands provided the Maliseet people with an abundance of food, materials and medicines, while acting as an important transportation route for hunting and trade.
The park was developed and is maintained by J.D. Irving, Limited.
