Shubie Park – Wintergreen

wintergreen, heath family, Gaultheria procumbens

Wintergreen in Nova Scotia Dec., 2011

On December 18, looking for a quick walk, we headed off to “Shubie Park”.   Brilliant red berries edged the trail – Wintergreen, also called teaberry (Gaultheria procumbens).  Coincidentally, we went there for a winter walk on December 18, 2010.  And none of those photos were posted – so, a couple follow here.

Shubie Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

When I searched hikes i like for other Shubie posts for links there were no Shubie posts…what’s up with that?  We often walk there when looking for a longer in-town walk. How could I not have posted?  Shubie park is a green space along a Nova Scotian canal.  There are all kinds of trails there and it is especially popular with dog walkers (there are off leash trails).

The Shubenacadie Canal and waterways is an intriguing bit of Nova Scotia.  Check the events and activities for descriptions of trails and maps.  And the HRM has an excellent map of Shubie Park here.
