  Spring Garden Road
by tvor

My favourite street in Halifax. Spring Garden Road is posh, funky, and alive with people. It's near the hospitals and universities and the Public Gardens. There are lots of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and shops along the road and the cross streets. St. Mary's Basilica guards one end across from the Old Burying Ground and the other end stops at Robie Street and then becomes Cobourg road past that.

Don't miss the cross streets and courts like Birmingham Street and Queen Street as well. there are some wonderful shops there like Woozles, a children's book store. You can buy designer wear in Park Lane and Spring Garden Place, also in Mills Brothers, Winchesters and Winsby's for shoes.

There are movie theatres in Park Lane and the Halifax Main Branch Library is a gathering place for many people. There's Bud the Spud's and Bill's chip trucks that park outside the library most of the year besides the dead of winter. The street is serviced by public transportation and really is the life and buzz of downtown Halifax
