it's a must see especial if you are looking for something to do with visitors on the Dartmouth side. Depending on interest level it will be 10 to 30 minutes. A five minute walk from the ferry terminal. Nice park. Outdoor display.

Though it is a bit run down, and a bit out of place, this pavilion provides a nice international outlook for a city which often doesn't. It is not that big or engrossing, maybe twenty minutes worth, but it makes for a nice stop when...More
