Miller Point Peace Park
In 2010, a committee was formed to advise Municipal Council on matters relating to the Miller Point Peace Park in Dayspring. The Miller Point Peace Park Advisory Committee is composed of six residents, plus the local Councillor for the area.
The park is an ideal place for a leisurely scenic walk or family picnic. You can enjoy views of the LaHave River and Horsehoe Cove along the trails as you walk thorugh the tower pines. In the spring, view hundreds of lady slippers and other flora and fauna along the 5 km of walking trails. In the fall, the changing colors are absolutely beautiful. This park has a long history indicated by the remains of stone foundations throughout the site.The trails are all level, smooth, and accessible to walkers, strollers, and wheelchairs. Outdoor washrooms are also available as well as ample parking at the park entrance. The inner parking area is open from early spring to late fall, but visitors are welcome all year long.
The park is open daily from 8:00 a.m to dusk.
The Municipality will accept donations for park improvements.
Special events are held in the park throughout the year and are open to the public. Watch our Recreation Guides for information or call 902-541-1343 or stop at the kiosk on site.
