York Redoubt National Historic Site Professional Review and Guide

"During World War II, York Redoubt was one of the most important elements in the Halifax defence system. Today, it has become a quiet location for a picnic or a short walk.

Every ship entering and leaving Halifax must pass through the narrow channel between York Redoubt and McNabs Island. From the gun emplacements, 55 m/yd above the waterline, this offers an unrivalled view of all the military and civilian traffic moving in and out of this busy port."
