Public Gardens

The Halifax Public Gardens are more than an open space or park. They are a rare example of a formal Victorian public garden surviving intact and relatively unspoiled in the heart of a modern city.

(Tourist Attractions)
Officially opened in 1867 The Halifax Public Gardens have survived for more than a century. Thanks to a series of talented and dedicated superintendents they have been little altered and still retain much of their original Victorian character.

However, for as long as urban development is on the rise and the city of Halifax continues to grow the welfare of the gardens will be threatened. The Friends of the Public Gardens is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and protection of this unique national treasure.

The Gardens are open every day from 8 AM to Dusk – For 2009, the Gardens will close November 12th. Look for updates of any extension to this date on the website. This website contains valuable information about the Public Gardens, their history, their remarkable plant and bird life, their unique statues and fountains and the Friends who are fighting to keep their legacy alive.
