We are the Friends of Taylor Head Park Society: a dynamic group committed to the park’s preservation and education about its natural history.

An Eastern Shore Gem

Taylor Head Provincial Park is a nature reserve known for its rugged, wind-swept peninsula stretching 6.5 kilometres/4 miles into the Atlantic Ocean in Spry Bay, Nova Scotia. Experience dramatic views along this uninhabited, unspoiled coastline. The endless confrontation between land and sea has created a natural world masterpiece. This signature Provincial Park boasts an uncrowded, 1-kilometer-long sand beach for family fun and 12.2 km/7.6 mi of fabulous hiking trails that skirt the rugged, scenic coastline.
