Swimming in Halifax
- Travel Tips
- Fodor's Choice
Chocolate Lake. In summer, lifeguards supervise this lake, just off the Northwest Arm, that's popular for swimming. The name doesn't mean that the water is delicious, but rather comes from a former chocolate factory on the site. Locals avoid swimming in Halifax Harbour or the Northwest Arm itself because of the dubious water quality. 2 Melwood Ave., Halifax, NS. 902/490–5458.
