  • The shady trees make your walk cool and cozy. They offer public bathrooms and they allow dogs. In some areas off leash, in some not. So close to the city! Very well maintained! We were in a big group....  more

  • The best place to visit in Halifax during winter especially when it’s snowing. The park is entirely covered in snow and it has breathtaking view of Atlantic Ocean. You will find people out for walk here with pet along. It’s huge place and it’s very easy to get lost. There are mini maps placed at some locations, so you can figure out your location and near by attractions.
  • Great walking and cycling place. Amazing area for dog walking. If from out of town the loading ship yard is something captivating to watch for a while loading containers. Never realized cargo ships were that enormous👍👀
