Recreation may be broadly defined as all forms of leisure activity that provide relaxation and enjoyment. This section deals with rural or countryside recreation, rather than activities taken up in towns or cities. The latter are important, but seldom relate to the capabilities of the natural environment. Most outdoor activities are seasonal, so a particular environment will support varying degrees of use in each season.
For Nova Scotia, by far the most important assessment of recreational resources is the Canada Land Inventory, conducted in the late 1960s and early 1970s by the provincial and federal governments.
