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.

  • 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 but the overall ambience was awesome. Wooden bridges further adds to an antique look. Please note that washrooms are still closed for the season so plan accordingly.
  • This is a great park with open spaces to run and play. They also have bridge crossings that traverse the creek. There's a learning center for kids to check out how composting works, how butterflies come to be, etc. It's a great park in the middle of the city next to downtown. You also don't hear much of the local traffic at all!
  • Yesterday was my first visit and I must say this is in my top areas that I've ever been to in the city! (and I've been to most parks & recreational areas in the city). Offered lots of different/diverse landscapes within the park and nooks and crannies with wildlife and insects galore. Will definitely be coming back in the fall to take some more photos.
  • I was there for an orchid show. There were a large variety of orchids showcased and information on growing orchids. A large variety of orchids one word (particularly on a winter day) just 'BREATHTAKING !'
  • This is very very important place in Toronto. This's are botanical gardens and turismo place. There are so many different types of plants flowers vegetables come from all over the world. They have very best restaurants and so many restrooms and so many free cars parking. Even one have to enjoy in summer time.
