This is a natural park with lovely walking paths by the water and many water views. Lots of benches if you want to sit and watch the world go by or have a chat with a friend.

We were in Halifax for the weekend. We went for a walk in the park. We loved it. At the end of the park, there is a beach with a beautiful view of the ocean.

As many of you may or may not know, Point Pleasant Park was partially destroyed during Hurricane Juan a decade ago. More than 70% of the park's trees were felled during the storm, and left many of us locals devastated that our park, which some of us had been going to our entire lives, so drastically changed.
