  • It is in the greenhouse that takes place every year the pumpkin... in reference to Halloween ball. And also the magic of lanterns... that night was amazing. But the Botanical Garden, it's also different parts of the world... the China... the Japan,... the French Alps... and many other equally magnificent corners... be it spring, summer, fall or winter... the Montreal Botanical Garden will always be a place to visit...

  • It's always rewarding to visit this beautiful garden. The gardens change with the seasons. I'm particularly attracted to the shade garden, the Japanese garden, Chinese garden, mountain flowers, each charm. Discreet flowers of the shadow, the subtlety and balance stripped of the Japanese garden, the abundance of China. To each his beauty culture. One, or rather two disappointments: very disappointing catering for such public place. Little shiny for a tourist. Yet the place would lend itself very well to a charming restaurant. And the little train that toured the gardens that no longer exists. There are also a host of activities related to the different seasons: Chinese Lantern night of autumn, the exhibition of pumpkins to ' Halloween, the birth of butterflies, with courses on the maintenance of the plants, bonsai, "taico" Japanese drum etc. In short to see again and again!

  • This was the second time in two years that I had been to the Botanical Gardens in October during the showing of the Chinese Lanterns. It is quite a sight at night when the lanterns light up all over the Chinese section of the park. This is a nice quiet and romantic night or a great activity with young children who will be in awe of the lanterns. This park is world class and a must see. I would recommend buying tickets on-line to avoid the hour wait, and getting there for at least 5 or 6 pm, so you may also see the park and floral sculptures before it gets dark. This will also help you avoid extremely long lines and actually find a parking space. At around 7 to closing expect a giant crowd of people on the weekend following each other very slowly along the paths to see all the lanterns. Take your time and enjoy it as this will be a slow evening, but worth the time!
  • Such an amazing garden! We were there in October, too cold and late for the more scenic plants outside, but the Chinese and Japanese gardens were still amazing! The Chinese gardens during that time of year have lanterns that make a night trip a must. They stay open until 10pm so it's an easy late afternoon stop. Lots of kids stuff and especially for Halloween, and the green houses are gorgeous escapes from the cold. Definitely worth the price of admission. Be sure to buy biodome tickets at the gardens to skip long lines there.
  • These gardens were so beautiful. A great way to spend a few hours and a must see if your in Montreal. The Japanese and Chinese gardens were beautiful and if you go at sunset everything lights up. I will be revisiting on my next visit and would recommended this to everyone.
  • Where: Botanical Garden, Montreal What: An outdoor garden near the Biodome and Olympic stadium. How was it: Great to visit during the summer, especially during the lights show. We wanted to visit the renovated look but the weather wasn't cooperating. Grade: Eli = 5, Serge = 4 Recommend : Yeah, worth a visit. We've been and will return.
  • A wonderful natural place inside the city, you can forget to be in Montreal just after few meters inside the gate. The insettariun is not To big but shows lot of the must strange and famous kind of animals. Walking in the middle of the natural garden will give you relax and goodness. Is perfect to live with children
