  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Love exploring this place. Lots of history and information. Cool forts and cannons....head down to the water after
  • Good peacefully park to walk your dog at
  • A beautiful place, rich in history, for a walk and to let the kids run around.
