Scenic beauty of Halifax Public Gardens

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada


Halifax Public Gardens are located right in downtown Halifax, the largest city on the Atlantic coast of Canada. This park provides Haligonians with a lovely green retreat within the city. It is an excellent place to spend a lunch break, have a picnic, read a book or simply relax on the bench. There is a gazebo with a red roof, a signature landmark of the gardens. This structure is very popular for taking pictures by students or newlyweds. It is also a bandstand, and the brass band plays here during the summer.

Halifax Public Gardens also serve as a place for natal day celebrations on the first Sunday of August. The Mayor of Halifax provides tea and cookies for the public on that day. Public Gardens have a large pond where a model of the Titanic floats. The ducks and a couple of swans occupy the lake and occasionally beg visitors for food. There is also a small stream and several bridges and fountains.

The city of Halifax takes good care of the place, and there is always something blooming. Often they have beautiful flower arrangements and competitions. Just outside by the fence on Spring Garden roadside artists exhibit and sell their creations during the weekends. Centrally located Halifax Public Gardens are within walking distance to the Halifax Citadel, downtown shopping area, and the waterfront.
