Halifax Commons is one of Nova Scotia’s oldest parks. This one was built in multiple phases later adding a large bowl and plaza to the existing setup. The original portion of the park is on the eastern half, with the older ledges and small bowl offering some fun and unusual options. The newer part of the park offers some incredible lines through the bowls and plaza. There’s something for everyone in this park. It should be high on your list of must session parks.

Located in the historic Halifax Commons, the park can be accessed off of Cogswell St, Trollope St, and Bell Rd. There’s parking available in the streets around the park, and a couple pay to park lots nearby. Like any downtown park, expect to park a distance away and roll/walk over to the park.
