The Loyalist Burial ground in Saint John is well kept and very interesting. Many of the memorials are so old they can’t be made out. It’s fascinating and well worth at least a walk through if you’re in the area.

Stumbled upon this site while wandering around the downtown core of Saint John on my first visit to the city for work. I was very happy to find this place. The grounds are beautiful, lush trees and flowers throughout, statues and fountains surround the old...More
Located across from King's Square, we found the Burial Ground. All throughout the area, there are tombstones. The grounds are well manicured with colorful flowers and wonderful shrubbery.
There is a fountain/pool with a statue of beavers located near the entrance facing King's Square.
