This is as close as you will get to Central Park in Halifax as it’s a beautiful park with endless trails and things to see. Can also see several old war bunkers and interpretive signs which is very interesting. There are a couple parking lots - this park is always extremely busy and really comes alive in the summer. Parts of this park are off-leash... some parts are no dogs allowed at all. Some are only on-leash - you have to watch your every move for little signs where the areas change. Are easy to miss. Beautiful views of the ocean/harbour and can even see York Redoubt and Dead Man’s Island from the park.

We love this trail as it is a lot less busy than the other trails in Sir Sanford Fleming Park. It is very woodsy and is a nice quiet loop with a bit of an incline. You likely wont see many people (if anyone) on this. Lots of other connecting trails you could pair this with. We love walking our dog on this trail.

Nice boardwalk trail right beside Fisherman's Cove. There is plenty of parking but the lot can be very busy during the summer months with Fisherman's Cove so close by. Easy walk for the whole family with beautiful views. It was raining quite heavily the day we were there so no pictures.

Excellent trail system for the whole family in the heart of the city! Plenty of parking but can be very busy. Washroom facilities located throughout the park. There's a rich military history to this park as well. Highly recommended!

It’s a good choice if u don’t want drive too far from downtown, especially suitable for daily exercise.

Great trail to walk if you need a getaway from the city within the city.

Nice views just prior to sunset

A great trail run. You can pick up the trailhead at EKM and continue to the Wolfville Reservoir for a quick summer swim before looping back.

This is a nice pleasant, easy walk for all types of walkers! Some nice views of Halifax on route
Great for a leisurely ramble.

Perfect trail to use as alternative to urban hiking. Water views are very nice and historical significance to the area adds to appeal.

Beautiful location, especially in the early morning for the sunrise and seeing the cruise liners coming the Halifax port. Dog Friendly off leash before 9am I believe. Trails are well groomed and water view on three sides of the park.

This is a great place for a pleasant walk. And the view...one of the best views of Downtown Halifax. The trail follows the harbor from start to finish. For a stretch the trail runs alongside an adjacent railroad track. Fortunately the trail planners built sturdy wood fences wherever the rail line and walking trail cross. With only one elevation change, the trails weaves and bobs through low vegetation, giving you a pleasant and short walk.

It's ok for a park close to a busy highway it sound like cars and it's better than walking on a sidewalk in the town.

In my opinion this is more of a biking trail. All paved and well maintained. Not much in regards to scenery. A few major road crossings take away from something a hiker may want to experience. I rated this 3 stars as a hiker but would probably give it 5 as a biker.

Perfect for fitness walking with the most amazing ocean views!

Great park at the end of the city. We walked from the cruise terminal, about 2K, and around the park. Even in the pouring rain there were joggers and folks walking dogs. Well marked paths. I was sorry we didn't have better weather.
