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.

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.

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.

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.

Good park for dog owners, if you are not a dog owner, it will probably feel a little too busy. you can find a lot better trails 20min outside of the city.

Good dog walking park. Many friendly dogs and large grassy areas for them to chase each other and play. My dog loses his mine every time I tell him we are going to the park!

One of the all-time favourites in Halifax! If you visit Halifax you must walk through Point Pleasant Park, and if you live in Halifax and have never walked it then shame on you!! Easy well kept trails and beautiful views of Halifax Harbour and North West Arm. Lots of parking at two different entrances to the park(one near the water the other starts into the wooded part). Great family walk anytime of the year!!
