“Park 'au natural'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

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. As always with Halifax, the people are friendly and the pace is pretty laid back, except for the occasional obsessive runner who speeds by.

“Nice park for a romantic walk!”

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.

“Nice walk with a great seawall and trails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The park is right on the tip of the peninsula so not only is it a hidden gem though the downtown area it has great views to the mouth of the harbour.
