Nova Scotia has a wealth of provincial parks. Some are small picnic areas, and others are large parks with a variety of facilities. Dominion Beach Provincial Park is located in Dominion (from Sydney, Highway 4 left, north of Gardener Road. 5 km /3 mi, right 8 km / 5 mi east along Highway 28) on Cape Breton Island.
The Park, which is supervised during the summer months, offers a 1.5-km (1-mi) sandy beach, with boardwalks providing access to the beach and protecting the dunes. Other amenities include change houses, salt rinse showers, flush toilets and two large parking lots.
