Halifax is justifiably proud to showcase the oldest Victorian garden in North America. Tranquil and picturesque only begin to describe the Halifax Public Gardens established in 1867. The 18 acre, manicured landscape is aglow with blooming flowers in spring and summer plus ablaze with foliage in the autumn. A favorite feature of waterfowl and locals is Griffin’s Pond. Floating in the peaceful water is a replica of the RMS Titanic. The model ship is a memorial to the 121 victims of the Titanic buried in Fairview Cemetery in Halifax.
