I frequent the park almost weekly. I walk my dog there. He always enjoys the park and meeting other dogs. People of all ages spend time in the park walking, jogging, biking, painting etc. It is wonderful to have a gem like this in Halifax. When you are here take an hour and walk the well marked trail. Enjoy the harbour view or have a seat and basque in nature all 3 minutes from Spring Garden Road.

A lovely park with lots of trail to walk on. We decided to climb the Dingle Tower. It is open to the public and has plaques all around giving the history of the tower. Once inside you start up an iron spiral stair case that leads to the first level with windows to look out. Then there are stairs along the walls until you get to the top and have to go up another spiral stair case to get to the top. It is definitely worth the walk up the stairs because the view from all sides of the tower.

Hidden jewel. Most people don't know this park exists, even though it is as big or bigger than Point Pleasant. Kids can watch the ducks in the Heart Shape pond. Great hiking or biking around the paths. Common to see deer wandering around. There are a few off leash paths in the park so that can be a positive or negative, depending on your point of view.
