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.
