Province Expands Parking at Crystal Crescent Beach

More beachcombers, swimmers and hikers will soon be able to visit and safely park at one of Nova Scotia’s most popular beach parks.

The province is almost doubling the parking capacity at Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park in Sambro Creek, Halifax Regional Municipality.

“Crystal Crescent’s three white-sand crescent beaches are some of the most beautiful and popular beaches in Nova Scotia,” said Minister of Lands and Forestry Derek Mombourquette. “The expansion of the parking lot will have more well-defined parking areas, better traffic flow and better access for emergency vehicles allowing more visitors to swim, hike and explore this scenic park.”

Construction is underway and is expected to be completed in March. The total cost of the expansion is about $680,000.
