Driving into Rothesday along the river on Rothesay Road (route 100) you will find this small park on the left just past the golf course. The East Riverside section of this trail travels along the road directly across from the golf course.


This small park offers beautiful views of the Kennebecasis River. The park has two small trails.

The Kingshurst Park Loop travels around the edge of a field that has some commemorative trees and a stand of jack pine. There are two small beaches that are accessed from the trail. If you look across the river to the right you will see the cliffs of Minister's Face Nature Preserve on Long Island.

The East Riverside Trail leaves the parking lot at the park and travels along the road. It passes two large granite boulders with a statue of a boat on the top. The boulders are covered in carvings with a description of The Great Race, a boat race that happened in 1871 on the river. The trail ends at a small parking lot along the road.
