Exploring Dartmouth!

 Since the weather has been so nice, I have been heading out on walks through old Dartmouth. This post is a collage of pictures from a May 28th walk through Downtown Dartmouth. I hope I inspire you to go outside and take in some beautiful history and scenery. If you are from away or have not been home for a few years, maybe you'll be inspired to visit!

Beautiful Sullivan's Pond. Photo: David Jones, May 28, 2014. We are spoiled to have such a park in the middle of our city! The First Nations totem pole on the little island was a gift from British Columbia to Dartmouth for the Canada Games.


This is where we gather on Remembrance Day: Cenotaph, Sullivan's Pond. This field was the site of the old town dump.  Photo: David Jones, May 28, 2014.
This is the last surviving Irish canal builder house on Ochterloney Street. It is next door to the Hungry Hut: http://www.thecoast.ca/halifax/hungry-hut/Location?oid=980387.

  1. I haven't seen this section of the canal and was wondering about the u-turn that appears in the panoramic shot second above. That hut with the archways is also interesting.
