Before departing Halifax on an early afternoon in late October, we decided to stroll through this jewel of a park to take full advantage of the warm temperature and brilliant sunshine. We set off from the entrance at the end of Young Street, where there was plenty of available on-street parking. Being a Thursday, there wasn't a lot of competition for space on the wide paths which bisect this expansive wooded oasis at the far end of downtown Halifax. As we continued to meander our way deeper into the park, we enjoyed the incredible Fall foliage colours and the serenity of being off the fast track. Eventually, we passed quite a few dog walkers and their pets, all of whom showed plenty of respect for two Seniors taking in the surroundings. In addition to the natural setting, there are a number of historically significant sites reflecting the rich history of the area; all of which, have been carefully restored and maintained. Whether it's only for a quick jog, brief walk with the dog(s) or simply a few hours of pure bliss, this slice of nature-in-the-city is well worth a visit.

There are two parking lots, one upper park and one lower park. There is a midway entry but no parking. Upper lot fills up before the much larger lower lot. Parking along the street from the upper lot as well. Great for walking, biking and dog walking. Various off leash areas. Only draw back is it’s crowded with people and off leash dogs. There is bathrooms at the lower lot and we found one more set of bathrooms along the way. There are many paths so take a look at the map at the entrances and figure out what you want to see. The outer walk is the most scenic but the old army battalions and Martello tower in the Centre are great as well. Shakespeare by the Sea plays here during non-pandemic times.

Beautiful park with free parking! You could spend an afternoon here sitting on the beach or walking the many trails here. There are always a lot of puppies at the park which makes it really enjoyable.

Beautiful historic urban oasis. We walked most of the edge and cut through past the martello tower. Walkers, runners , and doggos throughout. We met a roving gang of no-goodniks (see picture). Come for a little downtime and get away from the city noise. A great de-stresser. Love this place.
