I have been to Halifax Public Gardens many times. It is a little piece of paradise within the busy city limits. The beautifully displayed plants, shrubs, trees and flowers are very creative. Very relaxing strolling the Gardens.

The Public Gardens are always on my show off list for visitors to Halifax. Truly gorgeous array of blooms and trees spring summer and fall. They are closed in winter. An interesting history also.

The park was larger than we expected and has very diverse parts with sometimes very big trees. We enjoyed strolling under the trees, the diverse bordersn the impressive pond and the very well maintained borders and flower beds.

So beautiful! There are HUGE trees planted in the 1800's by the royals. Four of us adults linked arms around the trunk and still couldn't reach! This place is close to the historic graveyard that holds the victims of the Titanic.

This was a short stop on our Halifax City tour, but the gardens are simply not to be missed. Many different floral varieties, immaculate grounds and a very peaceful setting in the middle of the city. A highly recommended stop!

Was on our 4 Hr. tour of Halifx Titanic Historical and this was 1 of our get off stop. We had 20 minutes to take a stroll among some beautiful settings. Seem like enough time to enjoy the walk. Of course you couldn't sit and relax and really absorb the beauty it has to offer. Lots of plants, and trees... More

Such an interesting place to check out! You could spend as little as 5 minutes or as long as you want exploring the grounds. It's mainly a gorgeous garden but there are tons of little unique things (including a mini Titanic replica) and ducks! Would be a nice place to read a book or have a picnic in the summer!
