While visiting Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada and the aura of Spring surrounds you, be sure to visit the Halifax Public Gardens where flowers of various colors blossom. The Band Rotunda located in the gardens is encompassed by small well kept flower beds with each one of them featuring a different mix of flowers and plants.
The public gardens are an example of a formal Victorian garden which has retained much of its Victorian beauty and style since the opening of the Halifax Public Gardens in 1867. When the gardens were first created in 1836, the idea was to promote an interest in botany and horticulture while keeping the beauty of it alive for the people that resided in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This was continued until it was decided that the gardens should be made public so everyone passing by could indulge in their beauty.
The gardens started out as five and half acres and over the years it was expanded and now covers an area of approximately sixteen acres. The band rotunda was built in 1887 to celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee and in other areas of the gardens, there are bodies of water, fountains and statues.In the backdrop, the city buildings of the downtown core of Halifax, Nova Scotia in Canada rise above the trees as the white billowy clouds float by. Be sure to stroll the immaculate walkways through the gardens during the Spring and see the brilliance of flowers, many which emit a mixture of beautiful scents.
The Halifax Public Gardens are open yearly from May 1st through to November 1st. There are still free public concerts held in the gardens and people find the beauty of the gardens an excellent place to have wedding photos taken.Band Rotunda at the Halifax Public Gardens along Spring Garden Road, downtown Halifax, Halifax Metro, Halifax Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada.
