Enter through the park’s ornate wrought-iron gate and stroll along the network of paths, alongside flowerbeds, past fountains, and under exotic trees.

Halifax Public Gardens reviews
We were there in September and the Dahlias were in full bloom. Unbelievable! Nice relaxed stroll. People sitting in the park knitting, reading or just relaxing. more »
Beautiful Victoria gardens in downtown Halifax, many acres of trees, bushes and flower gardens, nicely manicured flower beds. Visited again in September when flowers were at their peak. more »
It is really beautiful in the summertime! There is icecream, but the lineup is sometimes long. It doesn't cost any money to go in. Sometimes there are live concerts, which are really nice. If you have the chance, you should go in, and sit down in the beautiful gardens!
We live in Dartmouth but we try not to miss any opportunity to visit Public Gardens. His place is like a therapy or meditation. There is just so much positive energy here.
