Nestled between two lakes in the heart of southern Nova Scotia, this 114 ha (280 acre) park offers a walking trail in a hardwood setting, canoeing, swimming, and camping for all those who like to enjoy the outdoors. The quiet beauty of nature is evident everywhere at Ellenwood Lake Provincial Park. The shoreline holds some of Nova Scotia's rare plants, and the lakes have both brown and speckled trout and chain pickerel.
