  • This place is not to miss. There are such amazing plants and different environments to enjoy. Great for kids too. 
  • When I first went to see. Butterflies go free was left off of the cocoon. They were all around me, I felt like I was in the land of colorful, fairy-tale flight. I didn't know there were so many kinds of plants. It's Green and white snow covered with a big park. What else do you want tight dress up. .. If in the Sun. 2. when I got to the end of June Once. Squirrels around the weather is sunny. Yes, you can read a book while drinking your coffee at the café in the park. There's a small store inside a small gift. The color from yellow to Orange, to red in October you can see trees each. Nature is very generous in this regard. If you look at which side of the frame into a separate table. Loneliness love to be here.

  • My partner and I visited the gardens in early October to see the festival of lights at the Chinese garden. We tried to time it so that we got there right at sunset but the lines were so long we didn't...  more »

  • 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
