The Halifax Public Gardens is the oldest Victorian Garden in North America. Officially opened in 1867, the Public Gardens has retained the original Victorian character thanks to a series of talented superintendents, chief horticulturists, and gardeners. Through their efforts, our 16-acre oasis, in the heart of downtown Halifax, was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1984.
