Smileys Provincial Park

Beginner Friendly

Note for 2021 HNSC is trialing a new location and not grooming Smiley’s Park- Haliburton House in Windsor

Benefits- More conveniently located for our volunteer groomers, cell coverage for safety, conveniently located within a municipality that has a rec department that loans skis, pubs and restaurants near by.  

Halifax Nordic Ski Club is delighted to partner with Smileys Provincial Park in Brooklyn, NS, to groom their park trails whenever snow conditions permit. Volunteers with the club will groom the trails after adequate snowfalls.  We encourage skiers to post conditions, and our groomers will update  HfxNordic with grooming updates.

Directions: 109 Clayton McKay Road, Hwy 14, Brooklyn, NS

Located close to the town of Windsor, Smileys Provincial Park is a quiet campground on the Meander River offers easy access to the many cultural and natural attractions in the area.


The Trails:  The areas abundant gypsum deposits have influenced the landscape and vegetation in and around the park.
