Beautiful gardens, well maintained within the city downtown Halifax. Well worth a stop by to spend a moment or a couple hours walking or sitting on a park bench relaxing. Some food is available, coffee and ice cream treats. Approx. 10 min walk from the water front along Spring Garden Road. Would recommend for any one visiting Halifax.

This is an old Victorian type of gardens with beautiful flowers, fountains and ponds with swans and ducks. Walk through the paths and take in the sight of all the flowers, shrubs and fountains or sit and enjoy music at the bandstand. In summer there is usually music on weekend afternoons. On weekends you will see many wedding parties having... More

If you love flowers, you will thoroughly enjoy this park. It is great for families with small children,and seniors, as it has easy and flat walking trails. Admission is free but you will have to use a parking meter. There are lots of coffee shops close, and sometimes in the summer free entertainment.

the park was founded in 1836, it is a Victorian style park. Very pretty when in bloom, probably starting in June. grab a blanket and have a picnic on the grass or for a walk.

When open, usually May through October, this Victorian-style guardian is an oasis of calm away from the bustle of the city. Kids can feed the ducks or race around the many paths, visitors can sit in the shade of established, stately trees, and the thirsty can get a beverage from the tea room. It's not large. But it's a place... More
