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.

  • My walking place 🚶‍♂️❤️
  • Absolutely Beautiful. Some of the best pictures I ever took were right here. Come, sit down, relax, smell the flowers, read the history, enjoy a little walk and be at peace. Have some coffee, and a bite to eat, while you're here. And support the local vendors outside selling clothing, art, and the other items. Why are you still reading this? Just go already, you'll love it too.
