Parks & Places in Downtown Halifax

Discover all the parks and public places that are located throughout Downtown Halifax. They provide a great space to eat, play, rest and relax, and each offers their own unique layout, view and feel. 

We recommend grabbing some takeout from a nearby local food establishment, and relaxing either by yourself or with a friend in one of these places. What a great way to spend a summer day!
