Best Place To Go Running


Gold Winner Point Pleasant Park

Silver Winner Shubie Park

Bronze Winner Lake Banook

If Halifax were New York (yeah, we know), Point Pleasant Park would be Central Park---our little urban oasis. Perhaps that’s a stretch but there are many reasons that the polls haven’t budged in this category since last year. A run in Point Pleasant guarantees you the following: challenging terrain, a waterfront view, historic relevance, a constant parade of cute dogs and lots of personal space---plus the added bonuses of occasionally interrupting a teenage makeout and grabbing a post-run ice cream across the street at Point Pleasant Grocery. If one thing’s for sure, it’s that they don’t call it Pleasant for nothing.
