Owner description: Stonehammer UNESCO Global Geopark is located in Southern New Brunswick on the East Coast of Canada. Stonehammer Geopark is a geological park where you can experience a billion years of Earth’s history. The landscape of the Stonehammer Geopark has been created by the collision of continents, the closing and opening of oceans, volcanoes, earthquakes, ice ages and climate change. The rocks of our geopark have been witness to the evolution of life, from the first discovery of Precambrian stromatolite fossils, to the ‘Cambrian Explosion’ of life, to the evolution of vertebrates and the emergence of life on land. The geopark includes geological stories from late Precambrian time a billion years ago to the most recent Ice Age, and almost everything between.

While I recall geology in high school it really isn't all that captivating to me. keeps my interest for the time it take to read the information board. I could see a definite interest to those more geologically inclined. Park is clean and well kept for those who attend.

Nice photo of the cliff face explaining the geology and showing the geological features. Then the nice beach and rocks for collecting. There is great fast food near by. Great spot to spend an afternoon.

A definite must, especially for families. Lots to see and do, from the outdoors to museums and cultural things. Kayaking is the most unusual and a great fun transportation you can imagine for travelling back in geological prehistory.

Great geologic history, and also history of geology, all well explained in booklets, brochures and on information panels at some of the sites.

Have to make sure you check the tides table and get there before the tide starts to come in. We wanted to see the caves so we had to go through a little bit of water to get to them. Well worth it. Spectacular view.
