    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 1.Alfredo's wine and Ho restaurant
    2.the ice cream parlour on the Halifax boardwalk
    3.King of Donairs restaurant (the best donairs in the know world)
    4.of course the 'Gazebo'
    5.my favorite fishing spot in Spryfield
    6.a tour bus trip to PEI, the Annapolis Valley and Peggy's Cove

    Fondest memory: i think my fondest memory would be the PUBLIC GARDENS and the Gazebo. i've been going there ever since i was a child, there a are ducks, swans and birds that make the place wonderful to visit anytime of year. as well as the assorted array of flowers and plants that litter the area. to me it's simply breathtaking and the most beautiful place i have ever been.

    Favorite thing: Take a stroll through The Public Gardens. It's North America's oldest (and largest?) Victorian-style garden. This is hard to miss - just follow the throngs of people along Spring Garden Road. Trivia: The front gates were purchased from a bankrupt garden from somewhere in the UK.

    Fondest memory: Feeding the pigeons - hold out a hand of peanuts and watch them land in your hands.. feeding the ducklings in the spring. and packing a lunch, sitting back and enjoying the flowers, the trees and the sunshine. A little paradise in the middle of the city.
