May 21, 2022 Merry Kessler

Travelers say Halifax is best seen on foot, so park the car and start walking. Immerse yourself in Halifax's rich history at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and be sure to survey the city from the 18th-century Citadel National Historic Site. Then walk into any of Halifax's great bars and restaurants and catch some live music to round out your day.

More than 65 years ago my father, a WWII vet, was stationed in Halifax. He not returned since but remembered this statue and asked me to see if it is still standing ...... a proud Canadian sailor!

Halifax Explosion Memorial Bell Tower

Reviewed By ManitobaNic

Peaceful location for the park with some wonderful trees growing. This monument included lots of information including what the ships carried that caused the enormous explosion and also pieces of the ship were also used when creating this memorial. A wonderful poem is etched into metal with the sunlight shining through. Parking available. The side streets are very hilly to drive on. Go in the evening when the park is quiet and after rush hour. Some teens were smoking behind the memorial, so not very respectful of this tragic event. A must to visit and its free. Easy to find, just program it in your GPS.
