My favourite park to explore in Halifax. Has plenty of hiking and walking trails and beautiful hidden historical treasures within it. Both tourists and locals are welcome and people are quite friendly here. Bring a friend and take your time. The views are astounding and the Atlantic ocean is not far away.

If you are looking for a great place to bike, jog or walk, this is it ... 25 minutes jog each way. Good place to walk the dog and it seems like everyone in Halifax is out for a stroll on weekends

Good park within the city. Good place to walk your dog or go for a run. Don't swim at the beach, water is very polluted!

Learned the hard way (sore feet), that a Park = forrest.
I really enjoyed my very long walk here. For the historian there are several points of interest, the Martello Tower is a must see. But just walking round the peninsula is a nice day-break.
I actually walked to the park from Halifax Harbour and back again. I would not recommend this, but it is possible.
Wear sensible shoes, and if you have the time, go here with a packed lunch and plenty of fluids!
