We walked from the public gardens area of downtown Halifax. It was about 10 miles round trip and an excellent long walk seeing another part of Halifax that is so different from the hustle and bustle of the city. The single area is quiet, serene and has people of all ages enjoying the park. We were unable to climb the tower but we did climb the miniature replica tower in the playground down by the water. Now that was fun!!

Be sure to check out my video of this location on my YouTube Channel at Josh the Travel Guy of this amazing location.

Dingle park is a local favorite. There are many trails to hike, a playground for the young ones, and a nice view from the top of the tower. Oh, did I mention it's right on the ocean?

The park is open during daylight hours. There is a lot of parking, so you should never have a problem to park despite being so close to the city. If you plan on going up the tower, make sure you are there in the summer, as it closes during the fall and winter.

The Dingle has improved from what I remember as a child. They have done a lot of work on the walkways with some of them completely paved. There is a small beach that is staffed by lifeguards which is great and they have even installed some play equipment for the kids. The Tower is the big draw and the lovely lions that guard it. I had heard that periodically that had closed the tower to visits but on the day we visited it was open and you were able to climb up and enjoy the views. It is a nice quiet park with very few people visiting it at any one time. It is extremely well maintained and clean with lovely grassy areas. A hidden gem that is a great outing for the family.

We often come over to the Dingle and walk the trails here. Well maintained and fairly easy to get around. Wonderful to walk along the waterfront as wheelchair accessible. The hills are a great from for some cardio.

Lots of areas to explore, including two beach areas. Also a good playground. The tower is amazing and highly atmospheric- my daughter (age 3) loved clambering up the circular stairs and hearing her voice echo loudly. We didn't get to the frog pond-- maybe next visit!!

They have a great play structure for the kids to play on and the tower is fun to see. This is an awesome park to practice your photography skills in.

Halifax is filled with park,but this one is my faviorate one. You have the lake where my kids will make sand castle and run. A small play ground. Where they can swing and slide. Lots of different area where you can sit and relax and enjoy the view.

The new seawall constructed around much of the Northwest Arm's shoreline is a great place for a stroll, especially in the mornings and early evenings. Some people like to fish here; water quality can be iffy, unfortunately, but the park itself is a wonderful, expansive oasis with diverse walking trails, including a pleasant one that circles the Frog Pond. Great for bird watchers and those interested in beautiful local flora, especially in spring. The newly-restored Memorial Tower makes for an interesting climb for those not afraid of heights; its views of the Arm are gorgeous.

The park is very popular, especially those looking for some great backdrops for their wedding photos. It is easy to see why it has long been a popular destination, there might not be a better spot in the city in the spring time especially.
Nice playground for kids
