The Frog Pond trail is one of our favourite short walks in Halifax. The 1.4km (20-30min) trail is a scenic walk that is part of the broader Sir Sanford Flemming Park trail system. Tangent trails can take you down toward the Dingle Tower. Keep your eyes open for various wildlife in the pond.

The Frog Pond is located within Sir Sanford Flemming Park on the western side of the Northwest Arm (part of the Halifax Harbour). From Halifax’s Armdale Rotary, take the Herring Cove Road exit up the hill to Purcells Cove Rd on the left. Follow Purcells Cove Rd. and remain on it past the entrance to Sir Sanford Flemming Park. The Parking lot will be on your left side (east) shortly after a tree-lined bend in the road. A sitting deck with benches will be visible on the edge of the road and overlooking the pond.
