Long Lake Provincial Park offers a variety of outdoor activities to be explored. Hiking trails is the best. The views of the lake are great. A gem so close to the city. It is only a short drive from the busy Halifax center of town.

The Park features access to two large lakes, with broad gravelled roads for trails, probably better for mountain-biking than strolling. Still, it's a wonderful addition to Mainland South, enabling residents and visitors to explore this huge forested area that was previously accessible only by small,...More

Easy access. Had no success fishing there last year but the dog enjoyed the water. Shocking that illegal clear cutting has taken place in the park.
