“A nice place to take friends visiting town”

York Redoubt National Historic Site
Ranked #43 of 143 things to do in Halifax
Attraction details
Reviewed July 21, 2012

If your are in town visiting and have some time to kill then I would recommend. A good spot that is not packed full of people so kids can walk around and explore. I wouldn't say it's a top attraction but is neat to see.

Went with a friend to take some photo's for her portfolio. Lots of walking not a great place for strollers, Would have been better if someone was there to tell you what each building was, what it was used for etc. Otherwise was an awesome hike.

we were renting a house and heard that the york redoubt was just up the road. we were walking and definitely took the long way there by accident, but the site is great. it's a small fort, but the grounds are well maintained and the views of halifax harbour are wonderful!

It's a great place to explore, but you have to rely on interpretive plaques to learn about the history of the fort. This is important as the history spans over 150 years. There are no on-site interpreters. Amazing view of approaches to harbour.
