One of the most popular places for a stroll in Halifax has to be Point Pleasant Park!
This 75-hectare park is home to towering trees, 39 km of winding footpaths, historical monuments, and great views of the Halifax Harbour and the North West Arm.
The park also features a supervised beach for swimming, off-leash dog walking areas, and summer performances of Shakespeare by the Sea.
