This is a park near the south end of Halifax Harbour. It is a great place to go, relax, watch ships come and go, You can also view some fortifications left over from wars gone by, and if you have a canine friend, there are places inside the park that are off-leash.

I love walking here. You get the trees and the ocean. Sometimes you get dog owners who don't control their dogs. They seem to think that everyone should welcome a dog racing towards them!

This park was beautiful, the sunset and sunrise here is great. I also love the little trails off of the main path. Love going for runs here too since it has a variety for inclines.

Historic locations, picturesque sites and lots of smiles. For a morning walk or reading a good book by the shore this gem will keep... More

I visit this park as often as possible with my dog. It has great off leash trails that are wide and take you throughout the entire park.
