Irishtown Nature Park - Red Trail

This 360-degree interactive panorama shows a short & straight section of the Red Trail (not far from the spillway bridge) in Irishtown Nature Park, located in the city of Moncton, in the province of New Brunswick. The park consists of 2,200 acres (8.9 sq km) of forest and 250 acres (1 sq km) of surface water and is one of the largest urban parks in Canada. It offers animals and plant life a wide variety of natural habitat, such as Acadian forests, wetlands, a lake, streams, etc. The lake was once used by Moncton as a drinking water reservoir in the middle of the 19th century.

The park also offers walking, hiking, cycling, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trails as well as access to the lake for canoeing and kayaking. Moncton’s Irishtown Nature Park is a very popular park any season of the year.

This panoramic image was captured in October, 2012. This is in the fall season here, when leaves "fall" from the trees after losing their usual green colour. Reduced sunlight results in a lower chlorophyll content in the leaves and they take on one of many shades of red or yellow. As winter approaches, the leaves become a multi-colour carpet and a subtle but distinctive odour fills the forest.

Parc naturel d'Irishtown - Sentier rouge

Ce panorama interactif à 360 degrés montre une petite section, bien droite, du sentier rouge (près du pont du déversoir) dans le Parc naturel d’Irishtown, à Moncton, au Nouveau-Brunswick. Le parc consiste en 2 200 acres (8.9 km carrés) de forêt et de 250 acres (1 km carré) d’eau en surface. Il s’agit de l’un des plus grands parcs en zone urbaine au Canada. Il offre aux animaux et plantes plusieurs habitats naturels, comme la forêt acadienne, des terres humides, un lac, des ruisseaux, etc. Au milieu du 19e siècle, le lac était utilisé comme un réservoir d’eau potable.

Le parc offre aussi des sentiers pour les adeptes de la marche, du cyclisme, de la raquette à neige, et du ski de randonnée; il offre aussi un accès au lac pour les adeptes du canoë et du kayak. Le Parc naturel d’Irishtown de Moncton est un parc très populaire en toute saison de l’année.

Cette image panoramique a été capturée en octobre 2012. Pendant la saison de l’automne, les feuilles des arbres tombent après avoir perdu leur couleur verte habituelle. Alors que la lumière du soleil diminue graduellement de jour en jour, la présence de chlorophylle diminue aussi dans les feuilles, et celles-ci deviennent rouge ou jaune. À mesure que l’hiver approche, les feuilles deviennent un tapis multicolore et une odeur subtile mais distincte rempli la forêt.
