Just a perfect place to be dog walking, running, or strolling along the sea. A rich network of trails, some connecting historic forts, and monuments. Lovely areas for picnicking, swimming, or just relaxing and watching the ducks play. Fantastic views of the harbor, harbor mouth, and NW Arm. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the Bluenose. Most paths are stroller or bike friendly.

A lovely park with lots of trails 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 staircase 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 staircase to get to the top. It is definitely worth the walk up the stairs.

This is a fairly big park. At the bottom, there is a big concrete duck pond close to the Bedford Highway. Lots of walking paths throughout. There is a little pond in our subdivision that is part of the park and you can also feed ducks there. That is where I post pics from.
