    Not necessarily into plants, flowers or gardening but I really enjoyed this visit. The Montreal botanical gardens offer a great variety of seeds, bulbs, fruits, vegetables, plants, flowers and other g...  more »

    Visit in the summer and it was a spectacular surprise. The Japanese garden is a SideShow, along with the flowers and the restaurant. Recommend to visit, but I don't know how in the fall and winter.

    We really wanted to see the Chinese Garden, but it, along with other sections were closed for renovation. This should have been shared with us as we bought the tickets. Also, August is not the best ti...  more »

    This is a beautiful garden with many species of local and exotic plants. Everything is labeled very well. The green house has flora from various tropical and desert climates. I had never seen some of the tropical fruit species up close before. The Japanese garden is amazing and includes a bonsai exhibit. Unfortunately the Chinese garden was closed for construction as well as the Alpine garden. Bring a hat and a water bottle.

    One of the best experiences I have had during my 4-day stay in Montreal. The garden was well maintained, with extremely diverse collections of plants -- certainly one of best of its kind one can find in Canada. Highly recommended if you are visiting Montreal. The garden locates only half a kilo from the nearest metro station and has plenty of parking spaces.

    The gardens are large and beutifully planted. I especially enjoyed the medicinal, aromatic, culinary portions of the planting. The Japanese garden with its display of bonsai trees was also very interesting. It's a lovely place to relax and spend an afternoon. The only thing is the so age to the different parts of the garden is a little poor, however the labeling of the plants is excellent.

    Wonderfully tended selections and impressive size. If gardens are your thing, it is easy to spend all day here. Two hours will only give you small taste, but might be a good amount of time to schedule for families with smaller children and the marginally interested.

    Great place to visit with family. You can park your car back entrance on street for free. Make sure take your camera to get some good picture. They have student discount for ticket but you have to show your ID. It is really huge garden.

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.
