Sir Sandford Fleming Park is a 95-acre (38 ha) Canadian urban park located in the community of Jollimore in Halifax Regional Municipality. It is also known as Dingle Park, named after the town of Dingle in southwestern Ireland. The park was donated to the people of Halifax by Sir Sandford Fleming. The centrepiece of the park is an impressive tower that commemorates Nova Scotia's achievement of representative government in 1758. Constructed between 1908 and 1912, the Memorial Tower was erected during the same period of building other commemorative towers in the British Commonwealth, notably Cabot Tower in Bristol, England (1898) and Cabot Tower in St. John's (1900).
During the 1880s Sir Sandford Fleming, famous for introducing standard time to North America, established a summer retreat on property fronting Halifax's Northwest Arm, after he finished constructing the Intercolonial Railway. He called his retreat The Dingle, the name that is still used today.

Love the trails and scenery . Construction complete and new trail system a go. The Trails zigzag through the woods and along the water. Take a path up to the frog pond for a longer hike. The forest and trails are full of wildlife, streams, little bridges, ponds and tons of peace and beautiful nature. Hang out by the ocean at the playground or one of the beaches...have a picnic, the rest lots of room in this big park. Go explore the tower, guarded by 2 giant Lions. Climb up the winding staircase and don't look down if you're scared of heights lol to the very top and out to the observation deck. Spectacular views of halifax, the Park and the northwest arm. Fall is an amazing time to come up and see the changing colors!

Beautiful park, lots to see and do. Great place for a walk or picnic. Great place to launch kayaks to explore the northwest arm or the harbor. Lots of parking, and washroom facilities. There is always people here doing everything from family picnics, to family walks.

Love this park, is amazing for going to read in the afternoon and be by yourself. It's great for aquatic sport too and take photos. Go and take a nap in the grass 😊

Great place for a walk, an easy hike, or time with your family at the natural playground and wee rocky beach. The washrooms are basic, but real flush toilets. Lots of parking, too.

Gorgeous spot for the family outing, with a beautiful, unusually cool playground, fields to picnic and play ball, shore front to keep cool, and beautiful scenery. Just up the hill there's a cool little heritage site, for added culture! ;)
