Beautiful Gardens (and coffee cafe to boot!)

We visited the gardens for about an hour. You could definitely stay longer. It's well laid out and a very relaxing place to visit.

Great place to spend your afternoon reading, relaxing, or taking photos. Usually gets busy in the summer with Weddings/Proms/Grads coming for photos.

If you want to feel like you are no longer in the city, but never want to actually leave, then Halifax Public Gardens is the place to visit. During the spring, summer and fall, this place is a must see place to go.

The Halifax Public Gardens is one of the most beautiful gardens in eastern Canada. It is extremely well kept "Park" located in the centre of the city. The summer flowers are gorgeous and the flower plots always have a thyme. A must see when visiting, or living in Halifax..

Perhaps I am a bit biased from the many visits to the gardens when I was a boy but visiting them again this summer was really nice. The gardens are beautifully kept and the park is a real pleasure to send time in.

This place is beautiful, the scenery is amazing and you can tell its kept well. On a summers day this place is very enjoyable and is located near by to a busy shopping district/ Downtown.

A must see for those visiting Halifax. These beautiful gardens are a peaceful place to stop and smell the roses. Lots of places to sit and relax and enjoy the nature around you. In the summer there are often free concerts at the gazebo.
