Lake Banook Sunset Walk
"Difficulty: Easy - Approx. 1 hour of leisurely walking.
Come for a sunset walk on Lake Banook! Home to recreation, aquatics, and beautiful skies! Come explore this popular spot in Dartmouth, the "City of Lakes" with us!
Please come with your walking shoes on, layers for the cooling of the evening, and water. This is a pay-what-you-can adventure, with a suggested donation of $3, the only other cost is bus fare. For anyone who needs bus fare, we have bus tickets available. Feel free to message us if there is a way we could make this trip more accessible to you.
This trip will take place on unceded Mi'kmaw territory. Lake Banook is originally named Panuk, for "at the opening", as this chain of lakes and canals in Dartmouth served as a vital passageway for the Mi'kmaw peoples. All original Mi'kmaw names of places in Nova Scotia can be found in this incredible digital atlas: http://sparc.smu.ca/mpnmap/.
Looking forward to meeting you all on this summer evening trip! We will enjoy ourselves as we walk around the lake, through the parks, and under the sunset!"
