Public Gardens, Halifax: 18 reviews and 30 photos

In the heart of Halifax are several acres of formal Victorian gardens. It was first created in 1836, the oldest public gardens in Canada. There is a gazebo that was built in 1887 where there are concerts in summer. There are many beds of flowers and trees, fountains and a large duck population. It's a lovely place to wander, sit in the sun and read or laze on the grass though there's only one spot you are allowed to do that. It's situated a few blocks up Spring Garden Road which is THE best street in Halifax.

The Public Gardens closes it's gates from Mid November to Victoria Day weekend (third Monday in May)

Directions: circled by Spring Garden Road, South Park Street, Sackville Street and Summer Street.
