|About these ratings|
The Public Gardens are a living testament to the Victorian era. And visitors welcome the respite from the urban atmosphere. Established in 1867, this two-acre public space -- marked by an ornate metal entryway -- houses manicured flower beds, quiet walkways, a picturesque gazebo and plenty of perfect picnic spots. As one TripAdvisor user describes them: "The Public Gardens is simply gorgeous, colorful, peaceful and beautiful … Oddly when you enter, it is peaceful and blocks all the noise from outside."
The Halifax Public Gardens are open every day from 8 a.m. to dusk during the spring, summer and fall; the gardens close between December and mid-April. Admission is free. You can learn more about the Public Gardens by perusing the park's website.
