Well known to local residents and dog walkers, Long Lake Provincial Park, bounded on three sides by major paved roads, can be reached by car from downtown Halifax in minutes. The park is sandwiched between Highway 306, Old Sambro Road, and Highway 333, St. Margaret’s Bay Road. Some of its property crosses St. Margaret’s Bay Road and borders the Chain Lakes. At its far end, it includes most of the land around Spruce Hill Lake near Harrietsfield and some of Peters Lake near Goodwood. At this point, it also connects to the northern boundary of the Terence Bay Candidate Protected Area. At its near end, it abuts North West Arm Drive and includes all the wooded land you can see between that road and Long Lake.

Various easy to moderate trails along the lake with nice views. No map or trail markings. Popular for dogs.
