“Walk over to the Museum and learn Canadian History”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

The park was hard to get to and it is weird that it is a dog park. You need to check out the museum and learn about Africville. It is a part of Canadian history that often isn't taught or known about. A large group of Canadians of African background but have been in Canada for many generations, were moved out of their homes and relocated. Check out the Museum http://africvillemuseum.org/

“Seaview park”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Park with a view of Bedford Basin.
Only visit in the daytime- before 4pm
Watch where you step due to dogs at large.
Next to container port, between the highway bridge approaches and the Basin.

“Beautiful park....not always best controlled dogs”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

This park is beautiful. However, both times I was there, there were some dogs who were not well socialized, and bordering on aggressive. Be careful and just do a scan of the park before you off leash your dogs.

“Sad”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

It was nice to go to a historical and see the names of families that once lived there, and later their homes and their lives were destroyed because of their race. Now it is a dog park for animals to use as a bathroom...and I guess to satisfiy the families that once lived there can reunite together once a year to reminisce on what they use to call their home. It saddens me to know that a whole community was relocated for a dog park.

“Lone Traveller”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

Wonderful place. Great just to sit and relax and reflect. I did this rather quickly, as it started raining.
