What a treat to have this wonderful park within the city limits. Great place for families to explore nature. We have enjoyed this park for over 30 years.

Lots of Halifax history to be seen, great avenues of pathways, lots of trees regrowing after the devastation of Hurricane Juan 15 years ago. Well used by city dwellers and tourists alike. Bus service from downtown takes you right to park edge.

I have visited this incredible park many times over the past 20 years and it is always a treat. Beautiful mature trees, wide maintained walking trails, grassy areas and a waterfront view. A must visit for any trip to Halifax

There was plenty of free parking here, which was a bonus to me. The views of the water and the sea breeze were perfect for a walk on a summer day.
