    Here are some of the monuments and fortifications along the shoreline of the park.
    The large cross commemorates all those who gave their lives in the battle of the Atlantic in both world wars. The base has bronze plaques listing all those who died.

    Wm. Robertson & Son Ship Chandlery This shop is part of the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Much of what you see is original to the store and was still in place when the shop was restored for the museum.

    The Naval Dockyard clock. It was first installed in the dockyard in 1772 and served until 1996, when it was moved to the Halifax waterfront. It is one of the oldest turret clocks in Canada.
