Nova Scotia has a wealth of provincial parks. Some are small picnic areas, and others are large parks with a variety of facilities. Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park is a small picnic park in Upper Tantallon in the South Shore region. The park has an area specially developed for seniors and people with disabilities. Park features include picnic tables, picnic shelter, fishing wharf, and a trail that connects to Beechville-Lakeside-Timberlea Rails to Trails. Group use is available. Two lakes that border this serene park, Lewis and Round Lake, offer visitors beautiful scenic water views from wheelchair-accessible walkways and look-off and provide ideal fishing opportunities. Round Lake is stocked several times throughout the season with brook and rainbow trout, providing anglers with a little piece of paradise. Two wheelchair-accessible fishing piers hover on the tranquil lake inviting visitors to leisurely enjoy hours of fishing in the autumn, spring and summer months. Bring a pair of binoculars with you and enjoy a comfortable stroll along one of the park’s four accessible nature trails while looking for feathered inhabitants, plants and wild flowers. Parking areas and drive-in picnic sites are conveniently located close to all facilities including a barrier-free vault toilet.
