About This Experience

Stroll through one of Halifax’s oldest gems… not to mention the oldest Victorian Garden in North America, the Halifax Public Gardens.

Wind down under the shady trees of the gardens for the ultimate Halifax experience. Feeling a bit hungry? Stop by the Uncommon Grounds Cafe for some snacks, coffee, or ice cream! With surrounding flower displays and fountains, it’s no wonder why the Halifax Public Gardens are a favourite among locals!
