Morris Lake

Morris Lake is considered a gem right in the heart of Dartmouth. It features several small islands, coves and a diversity of habitat and species. Some areas of this urban lake make you forget you are in a city. There is a public boat launch at the northern end of the lake just off the Portland Estates Blvd. You can also launch small boats at the Kiwanis Centre Beach and park at the south end, which features a barrier free fishing option.
