  • Like a mini Stanley Park. Or a Stanley Park before it became so busy. Nice place to hang out and go for walks. Dog friendly. Oh, and they got Shakespeare by the Sea in the summer time too. People are mostly pretty chill around here. Really like this little sanctuary in the city.
  • I would visit the park a few times a month. It's a beautiful place to walk and there are many things to do and see. The park is full of history and during the summer there are various events held there such as outdoor plays. If you're in Halifax and want a nice quiet afternoon this is definitely a place to see.
