It is in the north end of the city near the base of the MacKay Bridge, just off Barrington Street. One must drive north on Barrington Street to turn off to the right onto the side street to Africville Park, as there is no left turn travelling south on Barrington Street.

 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): The making of the park shoreline resulted in a steep slope of boulders interspaced with soft, muddy stretches offering a wealth of home for marine life to attach to rocks or live in the silt. Thus the larger boulders are cloaked in sponges, sea anemones, barnacles and other marine life, while thesilty areas have a rich fauna of Ceranthid Tube Anemones. This makes an interesting dive site for macrophotography.

We dive this site on the off season, from November to April, as it is a popular boat launch spot in the boating season and we prefer to avoid the period of boat activity. If diving during the warmer months, be respectful of the boaers - it is their launch ramp we enter and exit off of, and use a dive float.

The Stalked Anemones are richest to the south of the ramp, and the rocks and hard bottom marine life more plentiful to the left, north and west of the ramp on the flanks of the park in 6-10 m of water.
