Halifax's own urban wilderness park
We have a rare opportunity right now to
aquire 379 acres of pristine centrally located
land as Halifax’s largest wilderness park. The
Purcells Cove Backlands—bordering on
Williams and Colpitt Lakes—are located less
than five kilometres from the downtown core.
Conservation of this land will secure a permanent
place of leisure, recreation, and programming to
be enjoyed by future generations of Haligonians,
Nova Scotians, and visitors.
