Dartmouth Harbourwalk


This three-kilometre trail extends from Dartmouth’s Alderney Ferry Terminal to the Woodside Ferry Terminal. Waterfront Development, Halifax and the Dartmouth Harbourfront Trails Association oversee the Harbourwalk. The trail will directly connect to the Trans Canada Trail, Halifax’s park system, biking and walking trails, and complement continued development of downtown Dartmouth.

Another popular trail area includes the mural art project created on exterior walls around Dartmouth Cove. This collaborative project involves the creation of murals by local and international artists around Maitland and Canal Streets. This partnership has worked to mitigate graffiti in Dartmouth while transforming target walls into a community art project that continues to grow through the Hopscotch Halifax Urban Arts festival.

The initial Dartmouth Harbourwalk Trail project was planned and constructed by Waterfront Development, in conjunction with a number of other government agencies and community groups.
