Black Rock Beach

June 2017 -  at Point Pleasant Park, Halifax Nova Scotia

This public beach is part of a large wooded park on Halifax Harbour.

It is downtown near a container Pier, cruise ship berth, and a yacht club so you never know what you will find.

Most pieces are smalls (baby fingernail size) in white, browns and greens but due to good wave action, they are usually well buffed. I have found a couple of large jewelry grade pieces there too.

The shoreline extends past the swimming area and becomes more pebbly. That is where I found the better pieces.

My most recent visit netted almost 1 cup of sea glass. Some visits have been a bit less.

There is a huge picnic area, lots of free parking, Is on the #9 bus route, or if you happen to come on a cruise, the park is a 5 minute walk from Pier 21. It is very dog friendly too.

NOTE: The harbour water is very clean but because it is near commercial shipping, I still always wash my finds in boiling water before using them.
