Definitely take your time and stroll all through this magnificent urban park/garden. If you are on a relaxed schedule, spend a few hours here reading and meditating.

This is a nice area to sit and eat your lunch, read a book, chat with a friens and take in the view of the Public Gardens across the street. There is usually someone nearby playing a musical instrument. I love this little park

Happened on this park on my way to the Public Gardens. It is a very pleasant and attractive space. Has some very interesting statues that highlight the history of Nova Scotia and pay homage to Robert Burns.

This is a small park in between streets in the heart of the city. You will see statues of Scottish writers Robbie Burns and Sir Walter Scott and the Oland Fountain. There are benches for a rest or to have your packed lunch.

Despite the cold temperature of early May this was a delightful park to walk through, and we especially enjoyed the hints of color of several blooming plants that foreshadowed what it to come. It is a great, easy stroll.

Beautiful bit of nature in the city. The park is well done and the grounds are well cared for; I suggest it as a place for a peaceful stroll with your significant other.
