Calm oasis with lots of plants and displays. Very quiet, and nice place to go for a gentle walk around with one's mother.

It is central and small so very doable at any time of the year. Roses in late September. See the band stand.

We were in Halifax for a couple days. This garden is a short ( up hill ) walk from the waterfront. It has beautiful variety of flowers, ponds and walkways.

My husband, cousin, and I visited the Halifax Public gardens recently and although we are getting towards the end of the season the gardens were still beautiful.. Many dahlias were blooming as well as some other beautiful annuals. A lovely Victorian garden.
