AOL Travel Editor’s Review

In 1836, the Halifax Public Gardens were started and still stand as a fine example of a Victorian public garden (complete with a bandstand, statues and period iron railings and gates). The gardens are lovely to stroll through, or sit and read for a while. There is a duck pond (but don’t feed the park’s obese duck population or you’ll be slapped with a fine by the security guards) and rose gardens and all manner of beautiful flower beds. The garden has funny rules, which are posted at the entrance (such as you aren’t allowed to walk on the perfectly manicured lawns) but they obviously help the garden stay beautiful, so everyone observes them without complaint. You can get a coffee or gelato at the quaint café in the gardens. (The gardens do close for the winter months.)
