Friends of the Halifax Common
Preserving and expanding open space as the population grows is essential.  It is estimated that 15-20 000 additional people will live on the Halifax Peninsula by 2030.  The Common, at the heart of the Peninsula, can continue to provide vital “breathing space” for present and future residents and for those who work and visit here.

Young Avenue District Heritage Conservation Society
The society works to preserve the character of Young Avenue, one of Halifax’s most unique, historic, and distinctive streetscapes. Young Avenue is the main gateway to Point Pleasant Park and its development was facilitated by a Provincial Act of Legislation in 1896. As a well established neighbourhood, and with its strong heritage connections to many important architects and leaders in government, business, and philanthropy, Young Avenue has a grand and stately presence, popular with residents and tourists. In recent years the large estates have come under development pressure, thereby threatening the stability, character, and fabric of this important streetscape. The National Trust of Canada recently (2017) listed Young Avenue as one of its top 10 most Endangered Historic Places in Canada.
