The Halifax Public Gardens is adorned by fountains and statuary. This cast-iron rifleman from the Royal Canadian Dragoons was affixed atop the Boer War Memorial Fountain in 1903, one year after the South African War ended. You will also enjoy seeing the Victoria Jubilee Fountain. It was created in 1897 to help celebrate Victoria’s 60 anniversary as queen of the United Kingdom. Among the statues in the park are Ceres (fertility goddess), Flora (flower goddess), and Diana (woodlands goddess).
