The Halifax Public Gardens is a place we love to go when visiting Halifax. The Gardens are in the middle of the city but after a few minutes in the Gardens you forget you’re in the city. Ducks and pigeons follow you trying to get a bit to eat. Lovely flowers everywhere such a nice place to go. If you... More

Beautiful and serene, the Public Gardens is a joy to experience! There is a wide variety of plants, flowers and trees amid fountains, stone bridges and a gazebo. There is also a family lawn and a place where you can purchase ice-cream.

The best time, of course, is June to October. The gardens are always beautiful, the park benches clean, and friendly waterfowl.

The experience of seeing this was totally worth the long walk up Spring Garden to it. A lot of the flowers weren't planted as the weather wasn't warm enough yet. The flowers that were blooming, daffodil's, narcissus' and the flowering bushes were spectacular. There was one lone goose, that was picking at the ground and getting a little chubby, but... More

I order flowers from The Floral Bouquet, a flower shop in Bedford all the time, so last month during our visit to Bedford to visit friends, we stopped in to the Floral Bouquet to say hi. The Staff and owner is so nice and friendly, we were so happy to have a chance to meet with the owner. He personally... More

The Halifax Public Gardens is a large and beautifully landscaped park. A colourful assortment of flowers and plants lends food to the eye and pleasure to the senses. A visit to the gardens is an absolute must while you're in the city.

The small, well maintained gardens has all the requirements for a peaceful and enjoyable walk. Make sure to come during a sunny and not-so-much windy day to truly enjoy them.

Located downtown right by the famous Spring Garden Road of Halifax. Nice little green park with various plants and flowers and ponds. Great for pictures.

I enjoyed relaxing and seeing all the ducks and flowers just steps away from the busy Spring Garden road. It is very well looked after

This is a very nice place to stroll and relax. Listen to the birds, people watch or enjoy your lunch or a cup of your favorite coffee. When the flowers are in full bloom the colors are amazing. There is no charge to enter the Public Gardens. Take advantage of this location when visiting Halifax. On most weekends there are... More
