Garden Nature / Park
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. Roam its rocky pathways, cross arched bridges over scenic ponds, and relax in the gazebos. 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.

  • Edwards Gardens and the Toronto Botanical Garden offers extremely enjoyable relaxation and retreat to a traveller in the psithurism and the songs of nature. The trails are well maintained with an array of botanical beauties along its walk. In the summer, you can enjoy picnics on their spacious lawns available throughout the venue.
  • I used to come here with my nana all the time when I was a child to feed chipmunks and find trails and take photos. There are little river areas and a cute little hut and garden you can find up some stairs, it's so beautiful. Last time I was there I saw a sign had warnings against bunch of new things like no picnics or walking dogs but I don't know if that's just for the Botanical part or the entire park?
  • I went there on April 1, 2017. It is a very nice and well maintained garden right in the heart of Toronto. Although I visited in early spring and everything was still grey by the overall ambience is awesome. Wooden bridges further adds antique look. Please note that washrooms are still closed for the season so please plan accordingly.
  • Great place to relax in the summer. The place has a pond and a stream and is surrounded by greenery everywhere. It's beautiful and highly recommended.
  • A true hidden gem!!! If you like nature, walking & trails, don't miss out. I am really surprised they didn't promote this location as a tourist attraction. It's FREE!!!
