Things to do this summer:
Getting out in nature is one of the best ways to help reduce stress and get some exercise to boot! There’s an amazing variety of trails in Kentville, from challenging mountain bike terrain at the Gorge to easily traveled active transportation routes along the Harvest Moon Trail. Have you been to Miners Marsh lately to see the amazing ecosystem that changes daily? And of course, the Kentville Ravine where we challenge you to find the dragon’s den and hike all the way to the waterfall. Come check it out for yourself!
*Supporting mobility issues: If you have mobility challenges, Miners Marsh and the Harvest Moon are your best option. Both with hard packed surfaces and wide trails. There is plenty of shade on the Harvest Moon Trail, especially on the East End of the trail. As well, benches are generally distance about 800m meters apart to allow for lots of rest stops along the way.
Free outdoor activities to enjoy with your family:
Playing Tennis or Pickleball on the local courts,
Practicing your batting skills at the Memorial Park Batting Cage
Kick the ball around on our fields
Shoot some hoops on one of our outdoor basketball courts.
Come on out for bird watching (you can borrow binoculars from us!), connecting with nature, picnicking, and simply playing.
*All facility users must obey the posted Covid-19 rules and restrictions. For more information please visit our website, or call us at 902-679-2539.
Guidelines and tips
To help you discover all the parks and trails in town, Kentville has installed special blue signage to point the way. Maps are located at each park and trail head, and on the individual webpages.
All trails in Kentville are shared use and open to all forms of non-motorized active transportation (walking, biking, scootering, skateboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, etc). For the safety of trail users and to preserve the quality of our trails, motorized vehicles (except for mobility aids such as motorized wheelchairs or scooters) are prohibited on all Kentville trails.
Leashed dogs are allowed in all parks and on all trails. Owners are required to clean up after their pets and many of our parks and trails have pet waste stations with bags.
