This tiny little day park offers a quick peek at Nova Scotian shoreline. Its short boardwalk (1 km) on Halifax Harbour skirts sand and stone beaches to take walkers around a small point in the Harbour opposite Lawlor’s Island. We ended up there yesterday after another path/walk turned out to be much shorter than hoped for. (The maps we usually consult didn’ t show any path but my partner was hopeful:))
Standing almost anywhere in this park it is possible to see Halifax and then turn and gaze out towards the Atlantic Ocean. It reminds me of how close to the sea Halifax really is as a port city.
Located in the village of Eastern Passage (now part of HRM – Halifax Regional Municipality) the park is close to downtown Halifax and even closer to downtown Dartmouth. It is popular with people out for a quick walk away from downtown. (When Google maps zoom is working I’ll update my map).
