The ferry terminal is a great way to get to and from Dartmouth and Halifax's downtown area. The weekend farmer's market is great; the vendors are incredibly friendly. The building holds a great library, restaurant, theatre, liquor store. Nearby pubs and hotels as well. The little boardwalk is quite cute, but not as large as other boardwalks. You'd be better...

The landing is a nice place to arrive from Halifax. On the weekends the farmers market is great. Continuing up to the canal to sullivan's pond and Lake Banook is a relaxing, with several beaches and great trails.

Visited Landing this afternoon with several displays on the main lobby. Very friendly people, clean area and nice photo display of Dartmouth.

Daughter loves the Farmers Market on the weekends. Visited several time and it does not disappoint. Fresh seasonal produce, cheese, meats, baked goods, foods to go, craft items, etc.... As a bonus you have a great view of the Halifax waterfront. If you have a little time, visit.

The last time i was at this place was when my folks lived in Eastern Passage in 2005 - so I really wanted to go back because they have a library in this building. Still just as nice as i remember.

We took the ferry over from Halifax and were disappointed in the Landing. Nothing besides the Wooden Monkey restaurant and a Liquor store open when we were there. After walking outside along the water, the path back inside was very unkempt. Weeds growing every where and not appealing at all. Would not bother to do this again. Take the ferry... More

Alderney Landing has a very lively Farmers Market every Saturday. You can get the Ferry across to Halifax or just explore the Board walk. Views across the Basin are breath taking.

Great view of Halifax, the ocean and harbor. Can walk or bike along the ocean paths, great views in many spots. A good little playground for little kids, nice park with well situated benches. The ferry docks here, there are other docks that can be used, so come by boat too! There is a market on summer weekends that is... More

I live in Dartmouth and if a tourist needed some fresh food he might go there or take the ferry to Halifax and enjoy the much larger Farmer's market along the waterfront.On a few occasions there might be an ARTISTIC event Cruise Ships dock on the Halifax side.

We are so fortunate to have this facility in our great city. The Farmers Market is one of the best around, the theatre is superb and the children's activities cannot be beat.
