This beautiful small island is located near the Hampton Marsh, known as the Ossekeag Creek wetlands. The area has an abundant history, where the Maliseets people lived in harmony with Acadians until the Loyalists arrived in 1783. The island takes its name from the Spooner Family, who was the last to live on the island. It was later bought by the Rotary Club and turned into a nature park.
Various activities are available at the Rotary Nature Park, such as hiking and cycling trails, nature lookouts, walking trails, and much more! Visitors can also go bird watching at the gazebo or take photos of the local wildlife. The space is well-maintained by staff, featuring various ponds and marshes adorning the side of the trail roads. Pets are welcome, so long as they are kept on a leash. Enjoy yourself as the breathtaking nature of Spooner Island submerges you!
