Historic site brings to life that part of Canada's past when conflict between Europe's empire-builders took place on the shore of the Annapolis River.

Historic Fort that includes the oldest building in the Canadian parks system. Stop in the building and visit the museum and look at the amazing tapestry done by the townspeople to commemorate their history. Candlelight cemetery tours every evening well worth attending. Lots of history...More

If you only want to walk on the site, with a leash, I think you can. But if you want a guide you better with no dog.
