Enjoy wandering among a wide array of plants, trees, flowers, and more at Halifax Public Gardens, one of the finest Victorian-era parks of its kind on the continent. Created in 1867, the gardens span an area of 6.5 ha (16 ac), and boast a number of public spaces and venues. Enter through the park’s ornate wrought-iron gate and stroll along the network of paths, alongside flowerbeds, past fountains, and under exotic trees. Kick back on a bench and people-watch, or grab a seat and enjoy one of the frequent musical performances at the bandstand.

  • On Spring Garden Road, this magnificent island of greenery is worth devoting a few hours!

  • These gardens really are nice place to walk and just relax. There's good atmosphere. A lot of space still everything feels intimate. Go for a walk if you feel stressed out! 
  • Unexpectedly beautiful in October. Well taken care of. Dahlias and Zinnias..even the trees are labeled. Nice stroll in the middle of the city. 
  • One of the most beautiful places in Halifax. It was a treat to go there while visiting the city. Great place to just walk on your own or with company. Plenty of benches with as many nature settings to support your mood. Take your camera and you'll definitely get some great shots.
  • An impressive garden in the city. Well maintained and layed out. The pond is so peaceful. I was really impressed by this place. Better than I expected. Plenty of benches to sit and soak up the beauty.
  • Well-maintained garden, lots of Pokestops. Definitely should stroll through on a summer day, read a book in the shade, or check out a Sunday afternoon concert. In the summer time be sure to check out the Dahlias and mini exotic plant sections. For instance there's some small avocado, papaya, lemon, citrus, pineapple, and coffee plants.
  • Very pretty place. Perfect for photos (wedding, graduations, etc). Or simply a nice place to go read a book on a bench. Just know that there are designated spaces for law use (aka it's a garden not a park).
  • Lovely ducks. Good place for pokemon go too. I think there's an electabuzz spawn.
