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.

  • This is a great place to spend 15 minutes or 2 hours. It is visually stimulating with plants, flowers, water features etc. When you are there you do not feel you are in a city, 
  • Walk through this beautiful park with its bridges over streams and marvel at the variety of plants and trees found here. There are bands that play from the gazebo at various times.

  • Beautiful part of town! Smack dab in the middle of downtown. A little oasis of beauty. Great place for a wedding, a good book read on the grass, family brunch or just a stroll through for all the unique floral designs
  • 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.
  • It's a special gem in the heart of our downtown. Halifax isn't Halifax without our public gardens. Many individual species of trees all labeled. An amazing fountain in the middle. Great spot for the whole family and visitors alike.
  • 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.
