  • Serene beauty. Well maintained trail. Tables to have lunch. Water tap. Washrooms. Field to play in. Waterside view. Wildlife includes birds and squirrels.
  • Tranquil and green. Very well maintained and some light reading if you want to know the history of the place. Go walk, go walk your child, go walk your dog. Nice open areas for throwing a ball around, nice wooded trail to get out of the sun.
  • Great easy access to the trails from the parking lot, trails are well maintained, wide, mostly flat/level options, some gentle inclines. Beautiful views of the harbour and coast guard college. Nice to read about the history which is well documented in a number of areas through the park. Can take a shott walk or wind through to get a bit longer walk in.
  • Pretty, well groomed paths and grassed areas. Lovely place for a walk, run or picnic. Dogs on leash. Paths are by the bay, parklands and woodlands, with residential area on one section. Plenty of parking. Park is largely unused. Paths are fine gravel and are accessible. Foundations of heritage buildings present. Latrines are without running water, but did provide hand sanitizer. These are near the parking lot. Access to water via stone beach; not posted as swimmable or not. No changing buildings suggest few use it for swimming. Commercial docks and Coast Guard Collage share the same waters. Birds heard throughout.
  • Petersfield is a great family park, check out the Shoreline trail to get a great view of the Coast Guard College!
