- The Halifax Public Gardens were full of a variety of flowering plants, bushes, and trees. Obviously, great work was done to keep this garden looking fresh. Even in November, these plants were still relatively colorful. There were also plenty of benches, tables, and chairs in this space. I liked the bridges over the stream, and I enjoyed the many statues throughout the park. There was a gazebo in the center of the park, and there was also a very big lake. It was free admission to enter this space. There was parallel parking on the nearby streets.Written November 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- One of the nicest libraries I've ever visited. Not only is it amazing architecturally, but the inside is really inviting and appealing. They have two cafes (one on ground floor, the other on top floor). They thoughtfully put out interesting book selections facing outward around the stacks, which lead to a lot of perusing of books. Lots of places to sit and read, or computers to use (including iPads and Chromebooks to borrow). Almost makes me wish I lived here to take advantage of the resources.Written August 2, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I had done a lot of walking during my day in Downtown Halifax, but I did want to see some of the more rural parts of the city. This park offers many walkways through these deep tree-lined woods. I really enjoyed the ability to get in touch with nature while I was visiting one of the biggest cities of Canada. I was sure that the fall foliage must have been amazing here. There was free parking on the premises. Downtown Halifax was about a ten (10)-minute drive away.Written November 22, 2023
- Just before I left Nova Scotia, I wanted to pay my respect to the victims of the Titanic and to the 1917 Great Disaster. It was free to enter this cemetery, but this cemetery was only open for very random hours. It would be wise to check these hours of operation prior to any entry. It was quiet on a Monday morning. I was able to follow the signs to the locations that I wanted to visit, and I just parked my car as I viewed the graves.Written November 22, 2023
- No need to own your own skates! Just have a picture ID and you can borrow a pair for free! So much fun! Don't worry if you don't know how to skate, if you can stand you can skate using a skating aid.Written February 18, 2023
- We always enjoy the architecture of churches. We walked to this church from pier 22 where our cruise ship was docked, then continued on up to the gardens and the citadel.
The church is worth a visit if you are investigating Halifax.Written October 29, 2023
- We had a few hours so headed over. Wished I had known that Saturday is a better market. After 30 minutes we were finishedWritten July 11, 2023
- We went to the service there. We were very leery to drop in on Sunday, as we are tourists and were concerned that, that would put everyone off. Let me tell you we had nothing to be concerned about. Not only is it a beautiful church, and they have a beautiful service, but the people there are so welcoming and kind!Written February 26, 2023
- This is the oldest cemetery in Halifax and no doubt one of if not the oldest in Canada. Located in downtown it is surrounded by modern life yet the tombstones show their age and the names on many are faded. Nice to see that it has been preserved and not paved over by some developer.Written July 26, 2023
- We came to the market on Friday, but once we got there, we found out it was not open. It's really just open on saturdays and Sundays, and the other information on the internet is incorrect.
We returned on Saturday and bought several things, like homemade jam, a giant cinnamon roll, and cheese. They had other things like flowers and bath salts and jewelry and honey, a good variety of things at this market.
When we were walking back from the market and got onto the boardwalk, we found several little vendor houses and got some really delicious hot sauce from a company called nurple. It actually had flavor, not just heat.Written June 28, 2023
- Built in 1803 and a landmark of Halifax. It is next to the citadel. We walked here from the cruise dock at pier 22. Worth visiting.Written October 29, 2023
- I walked throughout the Historic Properties on my quest to buy sweatshirts and postcards. This location can be found on the boardwalk. There were plenty of options for a person to conduct his or her own excursion to shop.Written November 22, 2023
- This is a wonderful spot to try flights of on-site made beers. There are long tables with stools available. The interior is filled with visually stimulating signs, flags, pictures, art… You order your drinks at a counter, pay and pickup the beverages and then sit wherever you want. Excellent classic rock and modern easy listening music plays. You can bring your canine friends inside, too. There is a gift shop on the side of the facility past the bathrooms.Written November 29, 2023
- This statue is very moving. To see the man, leaving home with only a small suitcase in hand and leaving the family behind is representative of how our country was built.Written July 14, 2023
