Popular Dog Park:
The HMCC (Hantsport Memorial Community Centre) Dog Park opened in 2013 and is owned and managed by the HMCC. This park is a non-membership off-leash dog park, catered to Hantsport and its surrounding communities. Hantsport is located between Windsor and Wolfville
It is a large fenced-in area, with a running tap for the constant hydration of your puppy. This dog park is a unique and popular piece of Hantsport, as some people travel from Halifax just for a chance for their dog to experience this amazing park.
For the past, almost 10 years, this park has been the gathering spot for not only the dogs but their owners too! Given your dog has proper manners, around 3 pm on weekdays is when the park is busy and overflowing with pups!

The Barking Bean is a cute little Cafe located on the corner of main street Hantsport. As it is a restaurant, and dogs cant be inside where food is served, they have a side area where dogs and their owners can sit and get served. This cafe has a great selection of beverages, delicious sandwiches and wraps, and delectable sweets! They also have a room where they sell pet food, treats, and accessories. At the Barking Bean, they strive to sell quality products as nothing on their shelves is rated less than 5 stars!
