Trip Planner: Canada / Nova Scotia / Halifax Regional Municipality / Halifax / Halifax Public Gardens
Enjoy wandering among a wide array of plants, trees, flowers, and more at Halifax Public Gardens, one of the finest Victorian-era parks of its kind on the continent. Created in 1867, the gardens span an area of 6.5 ha (16 ac), and boast a number of public spaces and venues. Enter through the park’s ornate wrought-iron gate and stroll along the network of paths, alongside flowerbeds, past fountains, and under exotic trees. Kick back on a bench and people-watch, or grab a seat and enjoy one of the frequent musical performances at the bandstand.
