While we were at Halifax during our one day stay during a cruise holiday we decided to go to Point Pleasant Park. We were not disappointed because the Park could offer visitors access to trails and outdoor activities with many wide paths and trails for a nice walk in the open. This park is partially forested, covers an area of 75 hectares and is owned by the British Government but administered by the Department of Canadian heritage. In the Park one could find attractions, such as, the ruins of several fortifications and the oldest Martello Tower which was built in 1796. The Park is also home to a host of military monuments and one of the largest and most significant is massive Sailors' Memorial or Halifax Monument. This memorial features names of more than 2300 persons who lost their lives during both world wars.
