Outdoor Activites in Lunenburg Region
Start the perfect family day on the right track with a visit to BernArt Maze, located on Highway 325. This art maze is the first of its kind in all of Canada! Explore the cement sculptures that have been designed and made by over one hundred international artists, and see everything on your way to the finish. This is art that the kids can see, touch, and interact with, all outdoors! See the spider sculpture that towers the entrance and find the handprints and footprints of those who contributed their art to the maze along the paths.
Following along the Highway 324 and 332 will bring you to the Ovens. The Ovens Natural Park is so jammed packed with family fun it could be nicknamed Nature’s Amusement Park. Explore the spectacular and mysterious sea caves, breathe in the salty air, observe the sky and ocean on a cliff-side trail walk or catch a little gold fever by panning on historic Cunard’s Beach. When all the fresh air activity has your family hungry, head over to the Ol’Miner Diner to fill up on their homemade delights and local favorites. Once everyone’s batteries are recharged, take a romp through the playground, a visit to the petting farm or a splash in the swimming pool.
If it’s a low tide on the way home, don’t miss a visit to nearby Sand Dollar Beach. As you stroll on the sand, the kids can run on a treasure hunt for sand dollars that can be later made into jewelry, decorations or simply kept as a memory of a wonderful day in the Lunenburg Region.
