Sir Sanford Fleming Park – The Dingle
“The park was donated to Halifax in 1908 by Sir Sandford Fleming, creator of Standard Time Zones. The Dingle Tower was dedicated in 1912 to commemorate 150 years of representative government”.
A must visit kind of park
The park is located off Purcell’s Cove Road near the Yacht Club. Although the Dingle Tower is listed as “open” on the official Halifax Government website, it has been closed for a long time. The trails in the surrounding area are very walkable and well maintained, and the scenery is perfect.
“The stone tower is open between 8 a.m. and dusk from April 1 – October 31″.
