Oh my god, the Public Gardens are so, like, 1749. That’s when the first Halifax Public Gardens, a block away from its current location, became the fashionable place to stroll and observe the flora. Lucky for us, classics never go out of style---the Gardens are still your favourite spot to have your wedding photo taken, or take a walk while convening with Mother Nature and the ducks.
