The Dartmouth Harbourwalk Trail is a three-kilometre trail extending from Dartmouth’s Alderney Ferry Terminal to the Woodside Ferry Terminal. Develop Nova Scotia (then Waterfront Development), Halifax Regional Municipality and the Dartmouth Harbourfront Trails Association oversee the Harbourwalk. The trail connects to the Trans Canada Trail, Halifax’s park system, biking and walking trails, and complement continued development of downtown Dartmouth.
Another popular trail area includes the mural art project created on exterior walls around Dartmouth Cove. This collaborative project involves the creation of murals by local and international artists around Maitland and Canal Streets. This partnership has worked to mitigate graffiti in Dartmouth while transforming target walls into a community art project that continues to grow through the Hopscotch Urban Arts Festival.
The initial Dartmouth Harbourwalk Trail project was planned and constructed by Develop Nova Scotia, in conjunction with a number of other government agencies and community groups.
