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 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.
  • Great place to experience flowers, nature, and for a picnic. Lots of people to see if you enjoy people watching. Great for dates and weddings
  • Beautiful and peaceful spot. The gardens are nice, not like a grand castle garden but still quite nice and enjoyable to stroll around. Great that it has free parking and lots of room. It's a popular spot so there are always others out enjoying the space as well.
