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 and there are no fenced-in areas.  But this is one of those places that has built up such a loyal group of users, I don’t think anyone could reasonably complain about its use as a quasi-dog park.

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.
