History Hikes at Shubie Park
Shubie Park, a 40-acre (160,000 m2) urban park in Dartmouth that has the name of the Shubenacadie Canal, is maintained by Halifax Regional Municipality. With beaches at both Lakes Micmac and Charles, the park is tucked between them.
Locks 2, 3, and the Deep Cut are among the notable historic canal features found at Shubie Park. Visitors can travel back in time to the time when the region was inhabited by Irish and Scottish immigrant laborers who dug through the bedrock with pickaxes and shovels using a network of well-maintained multi-use trails and numerous interpretative panels.
The park is open every Wednesday and Saturday at 11:00 am. It is located at 54 Locks Rd, Dartmouth NS.
