Gold Winner Point Pleasant Park
Silver Winner Shubie Park
Bronze Winner Long Lake
The Coast’s Investigative Reporting Unit was curious about Point Pleasant’s countless dog-walking wins. To humans, it’s hard to distinguish the city’s many lovely, albeit repetitive, parks. Yet the dogs voting in the Best of Halifax obviously have a favourite. To figure out why pooches prefer Point Pleasant, we drafted office dog Beans into the reporting squad and sent her to the park. Undercover. She discovered dogs dig the park’s amenities: the Puppy Pause watering hole off Maple Walk, a cat-fighting pit in the woods by the Bridle Path, free bowifi. Which makes sense, since they think they’re people.
