Spend about $15 to get from the cruise terminal to the Halifax Public Gardens. Admission is free and it is a beautiful and peaceful place. The garden paths are clean and the whole place is well maintained.

A morning stroll through these gardens is a perfect start to the day! They're free, they're beautiful, and it's fun to learn about the plants and the history of the sculptures.

Absolutely lovely. A definite must see. Wonderfully kept with ponds and waterfowl to the beds of dahlias and roses. Gazebo was a nostalgic gem. Birds and great variety of flora and fauna. Everything is nicely marked. Loved it
