There’s no irony to the Public Gardens. For all the problematic Victorian era heritage and the hubris of a cultivated garden plonked down unnaturally into a city’s centre, the gated space really is a pristine gem to Halifax’s city life. It’s a small, peaceful retreat from the construction work and towering mega-dicks being erected throughout the city. Escape from those bold, bad decisions and stroll through the gardens on a sunny summer day, watching the waterfowl and wedding parties saunter by. It makes one long for a simpler time. Just stay off the grass.
