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.

Great spot to visit on a Saturday morning. Lots of vendors, wonderful pastries and live music at 10 am. If you are staying in Halifax take the ferry over for a nice view of the harbour and avoid worrying about traffic and parking.

The ferry landing is fun to ride or just watch from the benches inside or out side. The library is also... More

Great place to buy local produce and baked goods. Many other vendors there on Saturday. The produce is always fresh, the baked goods are home made. The crafts are all made by local people. Parking is usually busy but not hard to find. Get there early on Saturday fro best selection.

Alderney Landing is the Dartmouth water front, right across the harbour from Halifax. Many functions are held there throughout the year, especially the summer months. There is a large indoor theatre where events are held, plus an outdoor stage and plaza. So it can be exciting or quiet depending on what's going on at the time. You will have an... More

Plenty of parking, a few restaurants, but little to encourage you to stay Dartmouth side and not pop across to Halifax. Best place to park if staying on the Dartmouth side and visiting Halifax.
