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 is so so amazing .it realy good for couples and make feel so happy i went here with my boy friends its make me feel so happy. 
  • For those who love Nature, visit the Edwards Gardens is a mandatory stop. The Toronto Botanical Garden is a beautiful place and does that with feel elsewhere, as if I was out of town. It's nice to take a walk and observe the river that runs through the Park and delight yourself with the nature around. Reserve several hours if you want to walk because the Park is huge.

  • Toronto's botanical garden is a great place to enjoy the warmer seasons. We live within walking distance of the gardens and would always try and find time to go for a walk after a meal. There are always a lot of people enjoying the scenery. Parking is free if you do decide to drive, but donations are always welcome. Jason
  • 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.
  • Beautiful place! You can spend a good 3 hours there (or more) and won't even see the clock running. It's a huge and beautiful place. Very peaceful! Excellent for a picnic, reading or just hanging out by yourself or with people you love.
  • 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.
  • This is a beautiful garden, its very well kept. It's great for walks, photography of the flowers and people around. There's a bakery that makes really good baked goods as well as light snack foods and drinks are available for purchase
