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

My husband and I were there in early spring and even without not many plants in bloom it was amazing. I have already planned to go back in the summer to see it at its glory.

beautiful spot to spend time always something new to see and a great place to enjoy a summer day. Wonderful spot to take a lunch break after shopping in Halifax. Lots of birds and open air seating.

We had about an hour to kill before heading for the airport. All stress disappeared as we walked through and saw the great bulbs, flowers, trees and birds all around us.

Very nice experience - beautiful flowers, delicious ice cream. But the best part of the experience was seeing how clearly beloved this place is to Haligonians of every demographic. Feels like if you didn't stroll through the park, you'd miss a big piece of something important to people here.
