Urban Nature Walk
Urban Nature Walk (Oct 26)
STARTING POINT IS ON THE STEPS OF THE MARITIME CENTRE, WHERE SPRING GARDEN RD MEETS BARRINGTON ST. Though we will start this walk on the concrete steps of the Maritime Centre, nature will reveal itself in the city as we walk along, like the birds and sea life of the Waterfront. You will learn more from the walk experts, the Sierra Club and Dr. Bill Freedman of Dalhousie Biology about opportunities for habitat and interesting landscapes along the way. (read more)
Oct 21st, 2011: It was a wonderful day for a walk we had a nice turn out for the Gallery Hop Walk!

NEXT WEEK: Our last walk of the season! The Urban Nature Walk! Be sure to spread the word and come join us for a fun-filled lunchtime stroll!

Bright Lights of Barrington (Barrington Street Walk)
Bright Lights of Barrington
Our main street. Too slow, or not fast enough, change has always been part of our Barrington. To design or not to design...now that is the question. Old buildings tell of old legends, and new developments are often surrounded by controversy. Take a look and see what you think. (read more)
Cheap Thrills & Citadels (Citadel Hill Walk)
Cheap Thrills & Citadels
Look down, way down… then around some buildings… from atop what used to be Halifax’s second highest point! From here you can see ships sail there, buildings built over there, and a skating oval where once cows grazed just a little to the left. Meet at the harbour front clock (outside the ferry terminal), and trek up the citadel with Walk Halifax like a good soldier (read more)
Naval Gazing (Harbour Front Walk)
Ships Sail Here. And have for centuries. The focal point of Halifax’s hustle and bustle since the days of sail, through the days of war and immigration, to the days of tourism, the harbour front is full of stories. Why be left sitting in a Halifax office, when you could be walking along a Halifax pier? (read more)
