Hydrostone District


Young Street, Halifax, Halifax Metro



Designated by Parks Canada as a Federal Heritage Site, the Hydrostone District in Halifax is a splendid example of an English-style garden suburb, designed according to the latest principles of town planning in the rebuilding after the Halifax Explosion. The houses and shops are all constructed on a common architectural theme, and preserve a remarkable sense of time and place. Visitors will thoroughly enjoy the Hydrostone Market which is a popular and vibrant European-style strip of unique shops and eateries.  The Market is open seven days a week, with most shops open on Sunday.  Weekend brunch is also very popular at the Market. Bus tours are welcome.
