Point Pleasant Park

Point Pleasant Drive
Halifax NS

Top Pick

This large park is on the tip of the Halifax peninsula, marking the split between the Harbour and the Halifax Arm. There are fort remains throughout the park - especially notable is The Prince of Wales Martello Tower National Historic Site. Built between 1796-7 to aid the protection of British gun batteries, the tower is open to the public from July to the end of August.

Though Hurricane Juan devastated much of the park in September 2003, walking the many trails remains an excellent way to enjoy fresh sea air laced with the smell of pine. The re-growth amidst the more devastated areas is itself inspiring.

Shakespeare by the Sea performs Shakespeare and some newer works seasonally in various park locations, usually for a suggested donation.
