The Long Lake Provincial Park Association is a group of community minded volunteers who stepped forward to care for a new accessible park planned for Long Lake in Spryfield. The association is made up of a executive board and several committee chairs and members.

This section of Long Lake Provincial Park that LLPPA is responsible for is bounded on the east side of Long Lake from the grassy area near the Dam on Old Sambro Road, along Northwest Arm Drive to the north side of Withrod Lake. Though the park is cared for by LLPPA. The area is still under the control of The Department of Natural Resources and subject to the rules governing Provincial Parks in Nova Scotia. Like all parks in Nova Scotia, the section that LLPPA cares for, must be closed to vehicle traffic during the winter months, and the park is not maintained during the winter. This is the same as Crystal Crescent Beach Provincial Park, Laurie Park, and all other Provincial Parks.

Many people still use these parks during the winter months, but there is no snow clearing or winter maintenance done and users are using them at their own risk. The ongoing maintenance to this section of the park is either done by hired help when funds are available or by volunteers. There are no funds available to LLPPA from The Department of Natural Resources budgets, and as the park is provincial, the city of Halifax has no responsibility to provide funds or maintenance.



With over 5 Kilometers of groomed trails Long Lake is the perfect place to enjoy, walking, Hiking, Biking or Running.


Kayaking, Paddle boarding or Canoeing get on the water at our launch at the Old Sambro Road parking lot. .
