  • Great place for picnicking. Don;t expect to find a place to park. Fun place to walk around with free access to the 6 conservatory buildings. Lots of squirrel activity to watch  more »
  • I visited with a bunch of work collegues. It's a great place to visit on a cold grey day because it's warm and lush inside and very tropical.  more »
  • A very comfortable atmosphere, such a change of scenery from the winter setting outside. My friends and I enjoyed it, and found that it was a very nice environment, especially for an indoor garden tha...  more »

  • Beautiful and well kept botanical garden so close to the heart of the city. I love coming here for some peace and quiet. It's great for kids and families. I never get tired of visiting this place.
  • I went to the conservatory today to celebrate a big occasion by having a few pictures taken. Beautiful setting, nice break from the snow outside. There were lots of people with cameras taking pictures. We were approached by staff about taking pictures and explained politely that we were just taking a few shots. It was fine. Shortly after that, we were approaches by a second member of staff who was curt and told us if we didn't leave, he would call security. None of the other people taking pictures were harassed by staff or made to leave. Completely unfair and potentially discriminatory. I see from other reviews that this has.happened before. Some of your staff needs serious training.
  • The plants housed in this beautiful building are simply wonderful!! Well worth the trip!! The park itself is also nice for a day in the sun, the large trees are beautiful. Do be aware that there area has many poor and destitute people. They are quite okay around strangers, but it's safer to not interact with the those drinking in the park. Use common sense.
  • An absolute must-see in Toronto. It's never too busy and really a hidden gem. There are FIVE FULL WINGS of plants. All have something different to offer and it's gorgeous. Tourist or not, you have to go here.
  • Totally free and an amazing place to go to just relax. Hundreds of beautiful plants that makes you forgot about the world.outside. Hours are 10:am - 5pm, 7 days a week.
