These beautiful gardens are a welcome oasis in the heart of the city. Originally opened in 1867, the gardens ooze Victorian charm that is spread over 16 acres of lush greenery. In 1984 the Halifax Public Gardens became a National Historic Site of Canada. From the ornate wrought iron gate that ushers in visitors to beautiful fountains, pretty bridges and statues located all over, the garden has several beautiful features incorporated into its design. The sprawling flowerbeds, centenarian trees, several rare species of plants and the elaborate carpet beds are the highlight of these gardens. The Griffins Pond in the garden is worth visiting to see a model of the Titanic that makes it summer anchorage here. The Horticultural Hall,which is the oldest part of Halifax Public Gardens, now houses the Uncommon Grounds Cafe where one can sip on some delicious coffee and purchase souvenirs.
