This is a great park to take the family, work out, take the dogs, fly a kite, hike, lovers walk. It's a huge park with access to so many things, and in the summer there is an open booth with food & snacks. Stunning park! 😄 👍👍👍👍👍

This park is well maintained. There are some areas that are off leash for dogs. Lots of parking close by. There are picnic tables to have lunch at too.

I went to a Shakespeare by the Sea play. Enjoyed not only the outdoor play but the absolutely gorgeous stroll through the magnificent park.

Point Pleasant Park provides lovely walks in a beautiful green space, with vistas of the great harbour. There are also a Martello Tower and other remnants of fortifications indicating the measures necessary for the defense of Halifax in the past.

A refreshing oasis at the tip of Halifax's central peninsula, Point Pleasant is an historic park where locals and visitors alike can enjoy an always-interesting network of forest-lined paths and trails. An excellent place to walk and run, and one of the most fun places in the city to walk dogs, with many large off-leash areas. Lovely views of Halifax... More
