One sure sign of spring in Halifax is the opening of the Public Gardens. While the garden officially opens its doors on May 6th, some people had a chance to get a sneak peak.
After a long and gruelling winter, garden staff have been working hard to make the Public Gardens as beautiful as ever. Paul McAllister took a stroll through the gardens on Tuesday morning. “I wanted to see how the park fared through the winter and how the magnolia trees were coming and basically just to check things out”
Marion Frizzell is visiting Halifax from P.E.I. and has fond memories of the Public Gardens. “My son and his two kids live over here with his wife and last summer we took the kids here and they thought it was just terrific. the ducks, the trails – just the whole works! so today here I am!”
Lorena Ellis is new to Halifax and is looking forward to the Public Gardens being open for the warmer months. “It’s nice that Halifax has something that they can come and enjoy nice days. It’s really peaceful and I think a lot of other cities would benefit from having something like this.”
Whether you’re visiting from out of town, are new to town or have been around, the Public Gardens is a Halifax staple.
The Public Gardens will be open for season from 8am to a half hour before desk every day starting on Wednesday, May 8th.
