Point Pleasant Park

Point Pleasant Park is the signature park in Halifax, with 39 km (25 miles) of running trails. It is 3km south of downtown. The highlight is the trail along the water, following Sailors Memorial Way, which runs for ~2 miles (3.4 km), with great harbor views, woods, beaches, and eighteenth-century gun emplacements. There are also miles of wide, forested interior trails. Highlights include several historic military batteries and the the Prince of Wales Tower.

At the western entrance, Tower Road at Point Pleasant Drive, a large map shows all walkways and points of interest.
