Visit the park often by car to meet up with friends and hangout. The park offers a lot of parking. The trails are great for walking and is pet friendly for dogs on leash. Great spot to watch the ships come into the harbour.

The park has several trails linked together, and its shore border often offers sights of several species of birds. Great for walking, jogging, and for spending an afternoon in nature.

The beauty of this Halifax landmark was nearly destroyed during Hurricane Juan and was closed for a long time so that nature and the park people could restore the park to it's former beauty. It's always been a favorite place for a stroll, a BBQ or a wedding. A must for Haligonians and visitors.

This is a great park, especially if you like dogs. The main trail is nice and wide and the trails that branch off are off leash for dogs. It was awesome seeing dogs running around in the forest, jumping into puddles and annoying their owners.

This is a nice park with lots of beautiful trees. There are some war remnants around the park, and makes an interesting visit.

I grew up in Halifax and experienced the park in all seasons, cross-country skiing in winter as a kid, biking as a teenager and walking as an adult with kids. After moving to Alberta I returned home and had to take another walk in the park. It is still beautiful. My kids loved seeing Martello Tower and running around in... More

If not for Stanley Park in Vancouver, this might easily win the title of Canada's most scenic city park. It is located right by the ocean and numerous exhibits provide a key to the city's maritime past. It is a worthwhile place to visit at any time of year, and in any weather (and be prepared for rapid changes in... More

Halifax is so lucky to have such a park. It's large enough for walking/running. If I lived anywhere nearby I'd probably visit almost daily.
