Halifax Public Gardens (The)
To walk through the iron gates of The Halifax Public Gardens is to step back a century; Canada's first public gardens have that effect. Since 1867, visitors have enjoyed the flowers, trees, fountains, a pond and winding paths that will make life seem a little easier. Feed the ducks and count their babies or sit on a bench near the Victorian bandstand and listen to the music and marvel at the beauty of a huge Rhododendron in bloom. Bring lunch, you'll want to stick around. The gardens are closed in winter but are otherwise open daily from 8a to dusk.
The Gardens are Beautiful. I enjoy them many days as I work nearby and go there for luchtime with co-workers. The new food kiosk is a great disappointment. The menu is very limited for lunchgoers and the quality of the wraps/sandwiches varies and the place poorly staffed. Once you get it the coffee is excellent however the ice cream is expensive and over the summer we have seen many people with children walk in and quickly out after a price check. This is totally unacceptable for the Public Gardens should be for all to experience, especially children.
Right in the heart of the city, this place is fantastic for wedding photos or just a quick need to relax from the daily grind.
The ducks still waddle around and the bridge is one of the more popular spots. Even after Hurrican Juan a few years ago, it is coming back nicely and definetly a place to feel good in.
this place is fantstic ive been so many times it just doesnt ever get boring !!
try going its brill for all the family! it is best to go during summer when the flowers are all out. overall it was amazing.
