Description & Services

River Ridge Common is a 115 acre outdoor recreation site that offers picnic areas, a naturalized playground, an interactive art park and 4+ km of mountain bike trails for a variety of skill levels. Each of these features are constructed from wood, stone, and plant elements, inviting play and relaxation for all ages, revealing views of the river and a shady mossed gully that crosses the site. There is also a mountain bike skills area and pump track being added in the summer of 2020. Rest stops, look offs, and interpretive features allow users to enjoy special features, such as the lovely waterfalls of Indian Brook, and highlight the succession of a former working woodland growing back into a diverse Acadian Forest.
