Located on the shores
of beautiful Bedford Basin is the Lions' Park, named after the local Lion's
Club who were responsible for it's construction. This is a public park
located in the center of Bedford on Shore Drive. The park is located next
to the Bedford Yacht Club so it has great views of the boats moored there.
The park has two heated outdoor pools that are open from July1- Aug. 31
each year. A yearly pass can be purchased for a very reasonable fee of
around $60 (2005) or you can purchase a daily pass. Swim lessons are given
here as well. The park also has a paved outdoor basketball court. This
court is well known around metro for being used by some of the best players
in the city. There is a good size play area for younger children with
lots of well maintained play equipment. On Wednesday nights, in the summer,
the Bedford Yacht Club holds sailing races and the boats race close to
the park. --Click on images below to enlarge.

throughout the area but very few. A typical home in this area would be
between 50 and 100 years old. Advantages: Walk or short drive to downtown Halifax, universities,
hospitals, shopping, parks and most other amenities. One of the most prestigious
and sought after areas in all of metro. Gorgeous treed lined streets.
