The Halifax Public Gardens Celebrates its 150th Anniversary!
2017 marks not only the sesquicentennial of Canada
but also the Halifax Public Gardens
For well over a century, citizens of HRM, from around the Province, and from
all over the world have visited and come to love the Halifax Public Gardens.
The Public Gardens cover 16 acres within the bustling heart of Atlantic Canada’s largest city.
They are a beautiful and lasting symbol of a formal Victorian garden that has survived intact
and relatively unspoiled inside the shelter of its encircling fence for 150 years.
To mark this important anniversary, the Halifax Public Gardens will be hosting an exciting
and diverse array of events that everyone can enjoy – children, adults, Haligonians, visitors,
horticultural enthusiasts and garden admirers. This celebration will include groups,
organizations and individuals showcasing the arts and culture of our community.
Season long celebrations include a Birthday Party on June 10 from 11am – 5pm
Check out the Calendar of Events and mark your calendars!
