  • I enjoyed this park with my new born baby. Was great to have a walk in the sunny day and relax. I love this park. 
  • Perfect choice where, free of charge, you can enjoy nature in the family hour. Spectacular landscapes, bridges, animals in their natural habitat can be seen without any barrier.

  • Really lovely place to walk. Always something new going on. Parking is free but please donate to keep the park in good condition. There is a wonderful gift shop. Kids classes and a library.
  • Beautiful gardens, but VERY disappointed that botanical gardens are closed on national holidays! Makes complete sense, when you have time for an outing with the whole family they decide to close the botanical gardens. Holidays should be the days when the city opens its doors to all kinds of activities for families, not close them. Toronto should learn from other cities around the world, that have understood the concept of being family friendly.
  • The best botanical garden in Toronto. Well maintained with good walking paths. Plenty of photo opportunities.
  • Great place for catching pokemon. Jk besides pokemon, they have great japanese-style gardens with beautiful bridge for bike and hike enthusiasts. Great area for picnicking. Kinda a downer that they do not allow pets to enter however i do agree that it does make the park way cleaner. There are always plenty of ducks and birds. I particularly adore and appreciate the educating garden that they have up the hill for children and adults alike to learn about the various of plants and vegetables that are present.
  • Great place for the family to spend an afternoon. Or even a date with a nature stroll. During summer. Winter is of coursr a do not go
