Halifax Public Gardens

per person

Victorian era public gardens established in 1867, the year of Canadian Confederation. The gardens are located in the Halifax Peninsula near the popular shopping district of Spring Garden Road. The gardens were designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1984.

About the Main Gates :

The ornate wrought iron gates which welcome visitors to the Gardens stand 16’ (4.88 m) high and 21’ (6.4 m) wide and bear the coat of arms of the city of Halifax, “E Mari Merces”, which means wealth from the sea.

They were originally purchased from the Saracen Foundry in Scotland for the Arched Pavilion, which was the main entry point to the Gardens in 1890. The gates were moved to their present location on the southeast corner of the Gardens in 1907, when the perimeter wrought iron fence was installed.

Free admission, Open daily – 8 AM to 4 PM.
