    Stop on your way in or out of Halifax. It’s hard to believe you’re in a large city while strolling through the park! We were there in the morning and had the park almost to ourselves.

    We walked up from the waterfront, and it is a steep climb. Look for the parking at the fort if you have issues getting around. Nice views of Harbour. There are several great exhibits on history of settlement of Halifax and the evolution of Citadel, but the signage is not clear and I almost missed the main exhibit because it's entrance is behind the barracks building.

    Mix of exhibits on ocean liners and commercial vessels (boring unless you are really into scale models and ship design), the Halifax explosion, and the Titantc. It's worth the admission and is located right on the waterfront.

    Come early to avoid crowds and enjoy a more leisurely walk. Boardwalk is filled with nice shops, art installations and entertainment. Stop by museums to take in some AC on a hot day. We’d been here before the major renovation project and its completed work was well worth it.
