Point Pleasant Park reviews
There are two parking lots, one upper park and one lower park. There is a midway entry but no parking. Upper lot fills up before the much larger lower lot. Parking along the street from the upper lot.... more »
Beautiful park with free parking! You could spend an afternoon here sitting on the beach or walking the many trails here. There are always a lot of puppies at the park which makes it really enjoyable. more »
Like a mini Stanley Park. Or a Stanley Park before it became so busy. Nice place to hang out and go for walks. Dog friendly. Oh, and they got Shakespeare by the Sea in the summer time too. People are mostly pretty chill around here. Really like this little sanctuary in the city.
I would visit the park a few times a month. It's a beautiful place to walk and there are many things to do and see. The park is full of history and during the summer there are various events held there such as outdoor plays. If you're in Halifax and want a nice quiet afternoon this is definitely a place to see.
