Mira River Provincial Park offers a picturesque water-side setting for a wide range of outdoor opportunities including walking, boating, canoeing, water skiing, fishing, and swimming. The park is close enough for day trips to Sydney or the many attractions found in the area. A clearly defined trail in wooded areas, open fields, and along the shore can be used in the winter months for cross-country skiing. Please note that there are no facilities in the winter and parking is at the gate only.
