Caching At Morris Lake’s Kiwanis ParkMay 01, 2009

Recently we got a chance to visit the Kiwanis Centre Beach and Park on Morris Lake in Dartmouth, NS and do a bit of Geocaching. This is a small park that was created by volunteers from the local Kiwanis Club. It took them several years to build this fine facility and since it’s creation it has quickly became a popular spot. It is not a large park but it does include several short walking trails, a picnic area and a nice sandy beach with a floating dock.

In addition, there is access from the park to a great woodland trail that runs through a peninsula that splits the lake. The trail is a well-worn footpath that travels over rock and through bog areas culminating in a area that offers some great views.

We had to do a bit of bushwacking to reach the cache at the end of this trail and we were glad that we chose this time of year to visit. It’s likely that once the leaves come out slogging across the boggy areas would slow one down. We were also glad to have our waterproof hikers. :)

Here are some photos we took of our visit:

Caching At Cole Harbour Heritage ParkApr 20, 2009

We got a chance to do a bit more caching at the Cole Harbour Heritage Park recently. Although we drop by here for a walk several times throughout the summer this was the first time in over a year that we went there specifically to do some caching. We know that this may sound strange but we often come here just to walk aimlessly. :) It is one of our favorite spots on a hot day since you can catch the cool breeze coming off the water.

The entrance to the park is not hard to miss since it is fronted by a large red barn. This barn would have been used when the farm was in operation. Now it stands as a testament to another time, another way of life. It also makes a great landmark for finding the park and the parking lot is right beside it.

Caching At Cole Harbour Heritage Park

The seven main trails range from open fields to canopied forest with a couple that skirt the beach. There are many benches available for resting or just taking in the beautiful scenery.

The Main Trails include:

Heritage Trail
Running the length of the park, this trail is accessible from many points. It is the only trail within the park where bikes are permitted. Because it is relatively flat, it is a good choice for wheelchairs or strollers.
