Terence Bay Wilderness Area

“Much of Terence Bay Wilderness Area is typical of Nova Scotia’s Pennant Coastal Barrens Natural Landscape, which extends from Peggy’s Cove to York Redoubt in Halifax Harbour. This includes dramatic granite headlands, rugged barrens and patches of coastal, conifer forest. This rugged terrain extends inland, but is here consistently forested with mixtures of spruce, fir, maple, birch and some white pine.” 


SS Atlantic Heritage Park

“The immigrant steamship SS Atlantic of the White Star Line, en route to Halifax, ran aground near Lower Prospect, Nova Scotia on April 1, 1873. Of the approximately 975 aboard, some 550 perished in the worst single-vessel marine disaster to occur off the Canadian coast prior to the sinking of the Titanic”.
