The Halifax Public Gardens, founded in 1836 by the Nova Scotia Horticultural Society, stand as a splendid example of a Victorian garden and a National Historic Site. This exquisite garden is an integral part of Canada's Garden Route, attracting visitors with its lush greenery, vibrant floral displays, and serene atmosphere. The main entrance, marked by an iconic wrought-iron gate at the corner of Spring Garden Road and South Park Street, welcomes visitors to this horticultural gem, which is open daily from March to early November. The Gardens have become a popular tourist attraction, offering free horticultural and historical tours organized by the Friends of the Public Gardens, as well as serving as a picturesque venue for artists who set up shop near the iconic wrought-iron fence to sell their paintings, drawings, and prints
Surrounding the Halifax Public Gardens, visitors can find a variety of businesses, including charming cafes, restaurants, and shops. The area across the park is known for its vibrant and diverse commercial scene, with establishments offering a range of dining and shopping experiences. From cozy cafes to specialty boutiques, the vicinity of the Gardens provides a delightful setting for visitors to relax and indulge in local culinary delights and unique finds.
The sketch of the Halifax Public Gardens captures the timeless beauty of this historic site, showcasing the iconic entrance and the lush greenery that has made it a beloved destination for locals and tourists alike.

Care Instructions

It's important that you should care for your fine art prints just as you would any delicate and valuable artwork. With proper handling, your prints will remain in pristine condition for many years to come.

Follow these recommendations:

Handling
Natural skin oils or other contaminants can easily transfer to the print. As a preventative measure, we recommend washing your hands before touching the print. Use both hands and support the back of the print when picking it up.
Never attempt to rub the surface of the image with your finger or fingernail as this could scratch the surface of the print.

Exposure to Elements
Keep your print out of direct sunlight. Even the best quality materials are subject to cracking or fading if exposed to prolonged periods of sunlight. Although normal incandescent light bulbs do not present a problem, fluorescent lights do emit harmful ultraviolet rays.
Hang your print away from areas where airborne grime, dust and pollutants such as cigarette smoke can leave a discolouring residue.
Avoid extreme fluctuations in moisture and temperature. Excessive fluctuations between dryness and humidity, or extreme heat and cold can negatively affect the state of your print. Museums keep the temperature generally around 18 degrees Celsius and a relative humidity of 40%. If the humidity is too high, be on the lookout for mold.

Framing
When framing your print use a good quality glass specifically designed for protecting fine art and photographic images. We also recommend using an acid-free archival mat to prevent the print and glass from touching. Like many artworks, an original is sensitive to light. Please ensure that your framer uses UV resistant/museum glass when framing. This glass will protect the artwork against direct or indirect light for years to come.

Storage
To prevent accidents, store your print away from anything that might press against the image surface. Some objects may not seem sharp enough to damage the print, but you'd be surprised at what will cause a scratch, a tear, or a rip.
Do not stack prints on top of each other. Separate them with pieces of acid-free paper to avoid damage.
Wrap your print well if you plan to transport it. Be sure to put a piece of acid-free paper over the front to protect the print. Rough handling can damage the print so pack it securely.
Do not cover your print with plastic for long periods of time. If there is humidity in the air, the mold may begin to grow. Cotton, acid-free sheets are the best for keeping dust away.

Cleaning
The print should be dusted with a clean, soft rag, to prevent dust buildup. Never use cleaning products or water as this may permanently damage the print.
Do not blow on your print as you may inadvertently deposit water droplets that can mark your print.
If using compressed air, apply short bursts while keeping the nozzle at least 12" back from the face of the print.
