The Dingle is tucked away in Sir Sanford Flemming park on the Northwest Arm. It's a relaxing drive not far from the city, there are covered picnic tables on site, a walking trail and small beach at the park. If the tower is open you can climb the stairs for a beautiful view and a stunning sunset.

Why you should visit it

The 95-acre park was donated to Halifax in 1908 by Sir Sandford Fleming, creator of Standard Time Zones. The Dingle Tower was dedicated in 1912 to commemorate 150 years of representative government. There are walking trails, the Dingle Tower with bronze lions at the foot, a sandy beach (supervised swimming), a wharf and a boat launch.
