Parks & Facilities
Harvest Moon Trail
The 110 km Harvest Moon Trailway traverses the Annapolis Valley and the Town of Berwick is proud to manage our 2.2 km section known as the “Apple Capital Heritage Trail”.
The Trailhead, with parking, is located on Mill Street across from St. Anthony’s Catholic Church.
There is a community garden located at the Mill Street Trailhead and new for 2020, an interpretive panel will be added to the trailhead.
At any given time you will find a variety of modes of transportation, including walkers, joggers, cyclists, cross-country skiers, equestrians, ATVs and snowmobiles on the trail.
Also new for 2020, an access point to connect the Kings Mutual Century Centre to the Harvest Moon Trail has been opened as the Town’s newest trail. The KMCC Connector trail begins at the Kings Mutual Century Centre and is a 1km loop to the Harvest Moon Trail. Once on the trail, users can loop using the sidewalks to return to the Kings Mutual Century Centre.
Rainforth Multi-generational and Centennial Park
Located centrally on Cottage Street in Berwick, is our biggest park – Rainforth Park.
Rainforth Park is home to a softball field, a splash pad, Carol’s Place (multiuse recreation building), tennis and pickle-ball courts (new for 2020), a basketball net, greenspace and a playground.
Adjacent to Rainforth Park, with an entrance on Union Street, is Centennial Park which is a great green space for picnics and enjoying live music in the park! There is a gazebo and picnic tables in this part of the park.
Located in the 'Spicer Park' subdivision off of Hayden Drive, Spicer Park is known as one of Berwick's hidden gems. There is parking at the Hayden Drive entrance, a community garden and a small playground. This park also has an abundance of green space and is a great place to have a quiet picnic! The park also has an entrance from Cottage Street but there isn't any parking at that entrance...only a path.
Peter Connell Field
Peter Connell was a champion of sport in the Berwick and District area. After his passing in 2004, Berwick Minor Baseball spearheaded the re-naming of the former “Brown Street Ball Field” to be named in his honour. The majority of Berwick and Area Minor Baseball games are played at this field and it has washrooms and a canteen facility.
