There are many public parks, trails, and fields on or near the Halifax peninsula. Some are large
and well knows like Point Pleasant Park, while others like Nick Meagher Community Park are very small and may
be unknown to people who do not live near by. This project is designed to educate people living on the
peninsula about some of the local public spaces available for outdoor recreation and enjoyment on the
Halifax side of the harbour. To make sure travel by bus or bicycle does not take an excessive amount
of time the area of consideration is limited to the peninsula and Fairview/Clayton Park/Bayers Lake area.
For each place a short description is given along with a slideshow to allow an initial
virtual visit. Location information is provided using Google Maps, Mapquest, and Google Earth.
The buses servicing the area are listed as well as the bicycle route information from HRM's bicycle map.
For people into geocaching, the geocaches available are listed
