Seaview Park

This park is located at the northern tip of the Halifax Peninsula. The area was once an African American community known as Africville, but in the 1960s the Halifax city government expropriated the land, relocated the residents, and demolished the community to build the new A. Murray MacKay Bridge. Now the only reminder of the area's former life is a memorial sundial near the playground.
