We always stop in here for a walk while in Halifax. Located at the top of Spring Garden Road in the downtown area, these classic Victorian Gardens are a haven of greenery in the city. The gardens were just coming into summer bloom while we...More
This place is great! They keep the grounds beautifully. Amazing flowers - all colors and they change the flowers out periodically. They have free concerts on Sundays in July and August. Free! They have a little cafe there and they have excellent coffees! Also some...More
The garden is a beautiful place to enjoy an afternoon. The color and smells are spectacular. A lot of people enjoy the park without being overcrowded. The ice cream shop is well worth enjoying outside on the patio.
If I worked in Halifax, I would do my best to lunch in the Public Gardens as often as possible.
When I visited the groundskeepers were still working their magic, so I didn't get to behold the true beauty of this hallowed ground. But its...More
Whether you are a garden enthusiast, a photographer, or someone wanting a shady spot to ponder, this is a perfect place to visit! We passed the garden when we were on the Hop On Hop Off Bus tour, and determined to come back, which we...More
This place is so lovely. While many of the flowers were not yet in bloom, the Rhododendrons were spectacular. As it was prom night when we went, with lots of kids taking pictures, it was not very tranquil. (However, it was fun to see them...More
Love their proximity to city core. Day was overcast so not many people in park , even on a Saturday. Love that its kept it's victorian 'feel' thru coffee house, gazebo , etc. Well worth the hour or so spent there.

The Halifax Public Gardens are at least 1/2 hour walk fro the cruise pavilion. One way to do it is to to walk one block up and one block over until you meet Spring Garden Road at Barrington St.. Lots of interesting small shops along the way - Rest and have a coffee in our iconic library at Spring Garden Road and Queen - then its i flat to the Gardens by continuing on Spring Garden Road y walking by the eclectic shops and restaurants to South Park Street and there you are
Another way is to catch the hop on/hop off Bus and hop off at the Gardens then carry on to other wonderful Halifax Historic sites such as The Citadel one of the 9 star-shaped forts in the world
Or you could take a taxi ad walk back !
Enjoy the Gardens - they will delight you! .
