Purcell's Cove is a former fishing village situated at the mouth of the Northwest Arm nestled on the western side of historic Halifax Harbour. There are still several descendants of the Purcell family living here. It is now part of the City of Halifax.
The 'Backlands' forest is accessed through the backyard. The forest is a wonderful natural place for exploring with kilometres of hiking and biking trails, and swimming in Purcell's Pond.
