Kinsmen (Murdock MacKay Memorial) Park, located at 71 First Lake Drive in Lower Sackville includes a playground area (for children up to 12 years of age), a gazebo by the lake (an outstanding backdrop for weddings and special family photos), picnic areas, walking trails and a beautiful beach that provides an oasis during the warm days of summer.
The Park plays host to many events and celebrations throughout the year including a free Movie Night in the Park, Patriot Days / Canada Day activities, fireworks, live music concerts and much more.
There are park benches and picnic tables situated so that you can enjoy the sun or shade, read a book or just relax and enjoy the day.
The Kinsmen Club of Sackville and HRM would like to thank our many park visitors for taking the time to use the many litter receptacles. It is your efforts in helping us to "put litter in it's place" that helps to keep the park clean and safe for everyone.
Never been to Kinsmen Park?
Stop by and take a stroll along the beach and treat yourself to an afternoon of fresh air and fun for the whole family.
One of the unique challenges for all visitors to the Park is protecting the waterfowl.
Ironically, we can literally kill the ducks with kindness. Visitors to the park that feed the waterfowl, can have an unintentionally detrimental effect on the well being of the waterfowl. In most cases visitors are unaware of the harm they may be causing.
In an attempt to protect the safety and well being of the waterfowl, HRM has introduced a program to protect them. This program includes information and education along with the introduction of rules prohibiting the feeding of these birds.
Substantial fines may be levied against those who continue to feed the waterfowl. Please help us to protect our wildlife in part by refraining from feeding them.
