Fresh roads sliced through the beautiful country side.
One of the roads lead down to a lake, where one day, posh, over-sized homes with manicured lawns will sit.
Another day we walked in the Sackville Woods near my home.
Once upon a time there was a quarry in the valley. ATV trails lead around the low, boggier parts of the valley.
Of course one day we went for a walk to Shubie off leash dog park.
Next we checked out the new dog park near the Canada Games Centre. The park was hard to find as it was poorly signed. It's a more traditional park; fully fenced with a double gate system.
The park has two parts. A small woodsy walking loop,
and a large fenced field.
Yesterday we headed out to Hammonds Plains where I was meeting a friend for lunch. Prior to leaving I checked the Halifax Regional Municipalities' listing of dog parks and sure enough I found one nearby on Kingswood Drive.
The park consisted of one very large unfenced loop through some beautiful, mossy, lush woods.
In the centre of the loop, reached only from the original entrance was a large, open field where the dogs joyfully romped and followed their noses through the grass.
We really are fortunate that Halifax is such a dog-friendly place.
Are there dog parks near where you live ?
