Best Place To Feel Like You’re Not In Halifax

Point Pleasant Park

Point Pleasant Park is up and running, after being decimated by both beetles and a hurricane. Altogether, the park has lost tens of thousands of trees, but the 186-acre grounds—donated to the city by Queen Victoria in 1873 on a 999-year lease—should be back to normal by the time our contract expires in 2872. Trees, no trees, Point Pleasant remains your favourite.
