About Halifax Public Gardens

Halifax Public GardensThe Halifax Public Gardens in Nova Scotia are located near the Spring Garden Road Shopping district. The gardens, open to the public, were established in 1867 on a two acre area of land that is bordered by Spring Garden Road, South Park Street, Summer Street and Sackville Street. The Gardens are a popular tourist location as well as an area frequented by locals for weddings, photo opportunities and summer afternoon concerts.

The Gardens have an interesting history, coming into fruition because of the popularity of public gardens during the mid to late 1700s. Gardens were fashionable for all classes of people though only the wealthy were able to afford to have planted and maintained beautifully expansive gardens. In 1841, the Nova Scotia Horticultural Society selected a piece of land, fenced it and laid out various flower beds and vegetable plots. Over the next two decades, the plots grew and the garden was finally opened to the public in 1867.

Today the garden features gorgeous flower beds, shrubbery, trees and several statues and fountains. It's the perfect place to spend a weekend afternoon, relaxing surrounded by nature. A bandstand, wrought iron gates and Griffin's Pond are particular points of interest that any first time visitor should be sure to see. Be sure to look for the ducks, geese and various birds that call the Gardens home.

After an afternoon in nature, be sure to visit one of the restaurants in Halifax for a great dinner. Morris East, Anna's Café & Grill and Jamieson's Irish House & Grill all serve up tasty fare. Halifax, Nova Scotia is a fantastic place to spend a weekend with the whole family.
