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.
To have such a beautiful park so close to downtown Halifax is a blessing. We visited during a holiday from England and, despite going to the park on a sunny Saturday, we couldn't believe how quiet it was.

Our first visit to Halifax was lovely except for a very unpleasant encounter with a irresponsible and ignorant dog owner in Point Pleasant Park. On the morning of Friday, July 6, 2018, we decided to run from our downtown hotel to Point Pleasant Park as...More
First a disclaimer. I am a park lover, and am an aficionado of the great outdoors and park space, as a regular hiker/runner/biker of trails in the Pacific NW and BC.

There are plenty of trails throughout the park. You can just walk the path along the shore. There is usually activity be it freighters, sailboats or a warship. A section of the park is off leash but we were there on a weekday and there...More
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

Nope - just park in the upper parking lot, grab a delicious ice cream from the friendly folks at the corner convenience store there and start walking! I recommend going straight on the path so you can see Martello Tower on the right, the old fort on the left, straight through to the beach on the Noethwest Arm.
Then you can follow the water to go back, check out the big bandstand/gazebo, the sailors memorial, and end at Black Rock beach. Then you can walk back up the road to the upper parking lot, either through the park or on the sidewalk by the road.
