Halifax Common


I haven’t spent a ton of time at Halifax Common in recent years, but for three months in summer 2010, I lived nearby and this was our go-to spot.  It’s a super convenient play area, and there are always lots of dogs around if you’re looking for a playmate.

It’s not technically off-leash, there are no fenced-in areas, and we have heard that by-law enforcement has been in this area a lot lately (as of March 2018).  So proceed with caution.

How to Get There

It’s no secret: Halifax Common is the big green space in between Robie, Cogswell and Cunard.  There is on-street parking, but you’ll have a hard time finding a spot to park (and play) during summer evenings when the ball fields are being used.
