Visit the park often by car to meet up with friends and hangout. The park offers a lot of parking. The trails are great for walking and is pet friendly for dogs on leash. Great spot to watch the ships come into the harbour.

The park has several trails linked together, and its shore border often offers sights of several species of birds. Great for walking, jogging, and for spending an afternoon in nature.

This is a great park, especially if you like dogs. The main trail is nice and wide and the trails that branch off are off leash for dogs. It was awesome seeing dogs running around in the forest, jumping into puddles and annoying their owners.

This is a nice park with lots of beautiful trees. There are some war remnants around the park, and makes an interesting visit.

Halifax is so lucky to have such a park. It's large enough for walking/running. If I lived anywhere nearby I'd probably visit almost daily.
