Grand Lake Area

Grand Lake Area, Nova Scotia

Shubenacadie Grand Lake is a large lake straddling the Halifax Regional Municipality and Hants County. The lake itself is the seventh largest lake in the Shubenacadie Canal system. Shubenacadie Grand Lake boasts two beautiful Provincial Parks. Laurie Provincial Park and Oakfield Provincial Park.

Only minutes from metro Halifax/Dartmouth, Laurie Provincial Park is the perfect escape from the urban rush, yet the park is close enough for day trips in to visit the many attractions found in the metro area. The quiet lakeside setting offers a wide range of outdoor opportunities including camping, canoeing, water skiing, fishing, and swimming. Oakfield Park is popular for Picnics, swimming and boating in the summertime and has a wheelchair accessible boat launch.

Shubenacadie Grand Lake is situated between Fall River and Enfield, both popular, thriving, communities. Fall River has been expanding rapidly over the past 10 years with the construction of a large supermarket and surrounding shopping centre. Due to the increased presence of schools and retail, Fall River serves as a hub for neighboring communities. Enfield borders Hants County and Halifax County.
