Jerry Lawrence Provincial Park is a nature-lover’s retreat conveniently nestled in a quiet setting just minutes from the urban core of Greater Halifax. Two lakes that border this serene park, Lewis and Round Lake, offer visitors beautiful scenic water views from wheelchair-accessible walkways and look-offs and provide ideal fishing opportunities.
Round Lake is stocked several times throughout the season with brook and rainbow trout, providing anglers with a little piece of paradise. Two wheelchair-accessible fishing piers hover on the tranquil lake, inviting visitors to leisurelyenjoy hours of fishing in the autumn, spring and summer months.
Bring a pair of binoculars with you and enjoy a comfortable stroll along one of the park’s four accessible nature trails while looking for feathered inhabitants, plants and wild flowers. Please do not damage or remove them.
Parking areas and drive-in picnic sites are conveniently located close to all facilities including a barrier-free vault toilet.
