The Halifax Commons are a group of open public areas containing tennis courts, softball diamonds, a skate park, playground, outdoor swimming pool, large shallow splash pad…and plenty of wide open spaces! In summer or winter, it is an ideal location for free,  healthy outdoor family fun. Throughout the year, there are several family-oriented events held at The Commons, including family picnics, civic celebrations, and an annual newcomer’s barbecue. Here’s some useful information about The Halifax Commons.
