Belchers Marsh Park

Belchers Marsh Park consists of two parts, Belchers Marsh and Little Belchers Pond. Johnathan Belcher (1710-1776) was a Supreme Court Justice of Nova Scotia and was later the first Lieutenant Governor. He helped with the establishment and interpretation of the law in Nova Scotia, including the court system, based on the laws of Britain. Belchers Marsh Park was officially named by HRM Chebucto Community Council in January, 2003 after a presentation by the Friends of Belchers Marsh.
