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.
