The southern edge of the Halifax Public Gardens runs along Spring Garden Road. As you walk east, you enter Halifax’s main shopping district. You will first encounter Park Lane Mall and then numerous boutique retailers. Take time to also explore the intersecting streets. Just before reaching Barrington Street, you can admire several city landmarks. Getting hungry along the way? Choose from several pubs, fast-food chains or street-food carts. If your credit card needs more of a workout, visit other meccas for shopaholics at Halifax Shopping Centre (200 stores), Scotia Square Mall or Mic Mac Mall.
