Wander the picturesque paths of Edwards Gardens, a park on Wilket Creek. Adjacent to Toronto's larger botanical garden, the park was established in 1956 on the site of an abandoned family estate.

Walking the peaceful garden trails you can admire the roses, lush green trees, wildflowers, and rhododendrons, or enjoy the relaxing sounds of the fountains and waterwheels.

  • I guess it is pretty covered with snow as well, but I wouldn't know - I never visited it in Winter. Late Spring, Summer, early to mid Fall, it is just gorgeous. Whether it's budding, or in full bloom,...  more »
  • This is a lovely venue to do photo shoots for special occasions. There was such variety of flora & settings, that we not only enjoyed the photo shoot experience but also our day out!  more »
  • Edwards Gardens is a large garden of incalculable beauty. In addition to various species of trees and flowers, it is possible to find many animals like woodchucks and raccoons. The place is very nice to walk and take pictures. Any personal marvel with the nature of this incredible garden.

  • This is a great place to walk around and hike in if you are craving some outdoor time. There are many beautiful photo opportunities here and is often a very popular wedding photo location. The grounds are well kept and beautiful year round. A little gem of nature hidden in the city.
  • A decent place to walk around but not fantastic. Good because it is mostly paved so the very young and very old can walk here. Small area so you won’t lose anyone.
  • Love this place year round... great for a walk and some awesome photos too.
  • First time visiting and will definitely be back. Great place to escape and just walk around. Be prepared to do alot of walking. Plenty of photo opportunities as lots of gorgeous views to snap. There was a bridge blocked off due to construction but was still able to see alot . Ran into couples, families and a wedding party. A must go see whether you live in the city or a tourist.
  • Always a great place to visit. One of the bridges has been out of commission for months now but it is otherwise very well maintained. My kids enjoyed watching the little ducklings grow this past spring and groundhogs run around.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
