Chocolate Lake

Halifax, Canada

Chocolate Lake


Chocolate Lake is located in the Armdale neighbourhood of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The lake is surrounded by many private homes as well as a Best Western hotel and a city beach. As one of the nearest freshwater lakes to Downtown Halifax, Chocolate Lake is popular with swimmers and families during the summer months.

Chocolate Lake has turtles, muskrats, and catfish. Although it is cited as contaminated, the City of Halifax tests the water quality periodically and the beach has rarely been closed for high levels of bacteria. Chocolate Lake is sourced by the Chain of Lakes, which is Halifax’s backup water supply.
