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!!
