Nestled between Lake Micmac and Lake Charles (with beaches at both lakes!), Shubie Park is a 40-acre urban park in Dartmouth.
BIKING: As part of the Great Trail (formerly the Trans-Canada Trail), the Dartmouth Multi-Use Trail is a 7 km ride that starts at Sullivan’s Pond and travels along the Shubenacadie Canal, Lake Banook, Lake Micmac, and Lake Charles. Learn more.
HISTORY: Shubie Park features several significant historic canal features, including Lock 2, Lock 3, and the Deep Cut.
