Oakfield Provincial Park

A couple of weeks ago, we decided to go to a bakery and then on a short hike. Lloyd did a bit of research to find a good bakery outside of Dartmouth/Halifax for something different and found Wellington Bakery and a nearby park that looked like to could be nice. While the bakery was disappointing, the park worked out very well. We actually had a walking toddler the whole way out, too, so added bonus!

The walk was flat and relatively easy – an important consideration with two little ones – and featured a nice woods and a pretty lake. There were a LOT of picnic tables at the lake so either it’s a very popular park in the summer or its where picnic tables go to retire. Either way, we would definitely go back to the park, but probably not the bakery.
