  • Had a fantastic run round this park. Big wide trails and some great loops that you can run on. Good firm ground and not too busy. 
  • I had never been to this National park previously to this tour. It is a hiker's dream. You can follow well marked paths. You can also picnic on the site and the views or wonderful. 
  • A great park on Crown land in Halifax's north end. Walking and cycling is great and a QR code historical tour. Plenty of shaded places and safe areas to swim. Great views. You can bring dogs and some areas are designated for walking dogs off a leash.
  • My favourite place to take my dog off leash walking. We go several times a week. The paths are well maintained. The view is lovely. They have free doggie bags at the entrance too! Parking is limited, but tons of on street parking is available.
  • Great park for walking around. There are a lot of old batteries and a tower. If you have Internet access there are qr codes with information. At one of the batteries some people were practicing King Lear for Shakespeare by the sea.
  • axis mundi runs throught martello tower
  • I love taking the dogs for walks in Point Pleasant. To me it is the best off leash area in Halifax. The dogs are always happy and tired at the end of the walk.
