Located only minutes from metropolitan Halifax/Dartmouth, Porters Lake Provincial Park is the perfect escape from the urban rush, yet the park is close enough for day trips to visit the many attractions found in the metro area. The quiet lakeside setting offers a wide range of outdoor opportunities including camping, boating, canoeing, waterskiing, fishing, and swimming. A 10 minute drive from Lawrencetown Beach
