Public Gardens Now Open for 2016 Season
Parks & Recreation has another exciting season planned, with lots of fun, free events and activities for all ages.
Find out about the history of the Halifax Public Gardens, recongnized as a National Historic Site in 1984. The Gardens house a public collection of garden artefacts such as statues, a bandstand and fountains, which are representative of the Victorian era.
The Halifax Public Gardens and Leighton Dillman Park (Dartmouth Common) support charitable organizations in the region to promote upcoming events and milestones. Limited space is available in floral beds within both Gardens.
The free, weekly horticultural & historical Garden tours hosted by the Friends of the Public Gardens have finished for the season. An enormous thanks to all who participated - especially those who volunteered their time as tour leaders.
