Japanese Garden, Montreal

4.5
#10 of 34 in Parks in Montreal
Any time of the year, Japanese Garden offers a quality time spent among beautiful plants. Designed by the late Ken Nakajima, an acclaimed Japanese landscape architect, and opened in the summer of 1988, the garden makes a favorite relaxation spot for both locals and tourists. After overcoming the initial challenge of caring for plants from a different climate, the garden continued to bloom and add new species every year. In winter, some of the more sensitive plants get moved inside, but during the warmer months you get to experience all the garden's glorious smells and colors. Relax with family and friends, or have lunch in the park’s restaurant and enjoy the atmosphere.

    If you like plants then this is a must go place. Well maintained. Best to see in the evening as lights are there on some days.  more »

    Really enjoyed this part of the Botanical Gardens. They have a large assortment of various Bonsai trees which I found very interesting as well.  more »

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
