February 2018 - HRM Parks has completed a major expansion of the parking area at LaPierre Baseball field on Lakeshore Drive.

Kingswood Park#2

This is the park at the end of Kingswood Drive, on the loop. HRM is set to begin work to resolve drainage issues on the field that have plagued us since it was developed over 15 years ago. Once that work is complete, the KRA will be developing that field into something useful for residents. (Click to see map of the park)


Work is set to begin on September 5th and last approximately two weeks.


UPDATE: HRM has completed work on the field. It has been leveled and seeded, a french drain was added on one side and a ditch on the other side.


Long Lake Park


New dock is finally installed at Long Lake Park. New playground to follow. 


UPDATE: HRM will not be installing the new playground until next spring, but the old playground will be removed and the ground will be prepped this fall.


Our annual community yard sale will be Saturday June 3rd, 2017 from 9:00 am to 1:00pm. In the event of rain, it will be held the following day, Sunday June 4th.
