This is a lovely, well-maintained public garden with an interesting history. It's not extremely large, so it doesn't take a long time to see it all. There is a coffee shop inside the garden with baked goods, and also public wash rooms. There is no admission fee. At the end of July roses and day lilies were blooming. It would be interesting to see the gigantic rhododendron when it's in bloom in the spring. There is a lovely gazebo where free concerts are held on Sundays.

The Halifax public Gardens are only small and nothing exciting. Nevertheless I find them quite pretty and cute, perfect for a picnic. In summer they offer free concerts.

Beautiful place for a relaxing walk or go and read a book. A relaxing oasis in the middle of downtown.
