  • Great place to walk and explore, so much to see with amazing views of the Northwest Arm. Got to experience York Redoubt from the water by Kayak this summer, gives you an entirely different view of the place. One of my favorite places to photograph in the HRM area
  • Love this site for its out-of-the-way location. Very unfortunately the most interesting part of the park is actually fenced off. However, many people have found a way around the fence to explore the ruins there.
  • Really nice paths, And we found a super cool/creepy tunnel. Looking forward to going back.
  • Great park with space to play and have fun and explore with all sorts of historical stuff you'd expect to find at a redoubt (fortress). Beautful views of the Halifax harbour. Clean washrooms. Ample parking.
  • Historic scenic setting with great harbour view.
