Description

Point Pleasant Park situated in the south end of the Halifax peninsula is a historic 77 Hectare wooded park crisscrossed with 39 km of easy winding trails and wide paths, many wheelchair-accessible. Visitors can experience preserved ruins of early fortifications, coastal ecosystems, as well as cultural resources.  Halifax rents the site from the British Government for 1 shilling (about 10 cents) a year, with a 999-year lease. At the western entrance, Tower Road at Point Pleasant Drive, a large map shows all walkways and points of interest, including a Martello Tower and the ruins of several forts. Other park features include a supervised beach for swimming, off-leash dog walking areas, a canteen and washroom facilities. The park can be booked for weddings and special events.
