Landscape design of the Halifax Public Gardens were copied from the Victorian-era and have relatively beautiful sceneries for wedding and other private affairs. In 1872, Richard Power was designated as the Garden's superintendent, accomplishing more linden and elm trees along Summer and Sackville Streets that are still existing today. Aside from trees, shrubs and flowers, the Gardens have various war monuments such as the statue of a soldier from the Second Boer War, and the memorial plaque for the Halifax Provisional Battalion. Furthermore, Halifax Public Gardens contain a series of statues: Flora, Ceres and Diana; and three fountains such as the Jubilee Fountain, the Soldiers Memorial Fountain, and the modern forecourt fountain located between Horticultural Hall and Spring Garden Road.
Public concerts during summer are held in the Gardens' bandstand. The Halifax Public Gardens is taken care of by the Friends of the Public Gardens, to preserve, enhance, and protect the national historic site.
