Halifax Public Gardens reviews
It is really beautiful in the summertime! There is icecream, but the lineup is sometimes long. It doesn't cost any money to go in. Sometimes there are live concerts, which are really nice. If you have the chance, you should go in, and sit down in the beautiful gardens!
We live in Dartmouth but we try not to miss any opportunity to visit Public Gardens. His place is like a therapy or meditation. There is just so much positive energy here.
