Halifax Public Gardens 

History is alive in downtown Halifax. In 1867, two older parks combined to create the beautiful, 16-acre Halifax Public Gardens.

These beautiful Victorian gardens, a National Historic Site, have kept their original character through the years, from the efforts of many horticulturists and gardeners.

The gardens feature ornate fountains, urns, statues, more than one hundred species of trees and a beautiful array of flower beds.

While in Halifax, walk through the elegant wrought iron entrance to see the beauty within. Enjoy strolling through the gardens admiring the green lawns, shrubs and carpet bedding displays.

Peggy's Cove

Peggy's Cove

Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia

Just south of Halifax in central Nova Scotia, is a wonderful fishing community worth visiting. The name of the community is Peggy’s Cove, after the cove of the same name.

Peggy's Cove, situated along the east shore of St. Margarets Bay, was established as Peggs Harbour in 1766. By the early 1900s, German settlers continued fishing for a living and built a lobster cannery, schoolhouse, general store and church.

Each year, many tourists visit this quaint village, which includes Peggys Point Lighthouse. This red and white lighthouse, built in 1914, sits on the granite outcrop at the eastern entrance to St. Margarets Bay. It's a must-visit on any stay in Halifax.

While in town, be sure to also visit the Swissair Flight 111 Memorial, in memory of the 229 people who died when the place crashed into St. Margarets Bay in 1998. The beautiful area of Peggy's Cove will remain preserved, since it was declared a preservation area.
