The largest park on the peninsula is Point Pleasant Park, occupying 185 acres of the south tip. Leased to the people of Halifax in 1866 from Queen Victoria for a shilling a year, the park is open year round with numerous walking trails and landmarks. Most of the park’s trees were devastated by Hurricane Juan in 2003, but despite the vast changes to the park’s appearance it is still an enjoyable destination.
