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.

  • The location is beautiful, spacious with many trees and some animals outdoors. I went during the winter, with many trees. Recommend the site for an excellent ride.

  • Worth visiting any time of year, but especially in spring and fall. You probably need a car to get there though there are also bike paths that will get you there. You can walk around the entire garden...  more »
  • A Pearl not very famous and known, but absolutely wonderful; a walk here when the weather is ideal

  • This is a great place to walk around and hike in if you are craving some outdoor time. There are many beautiful photo opportunities here and is often a very popular wedding photo location. The grounds are well kept and beautiful year round. A little gem of nature hidden in the city.
  • A decent place to walk around but not fantastic. Good because it is mostly paved so the very young and very old can walk here. Small area so you won’t lose anyone.
  • It's a nice park in the summertime but it would be nice if they told you that the path was closed and under construction before you walk a kilometer out there only to have to turn back.
  • Always a great place to visit. One of the bridges has been out of commission for months now but it is otherwise very well maintained. My kids enjoyed watching the little ducklings grow this past spring and groundhogs run around.
  • First time visiting and will definitely be back. Great place to escape and just walk around. Be prepared to do alot of walking. Plenty of photo opportunities as lots of gorgeous views to snap. There was a bridge blocked off due to construction but was still able to see alot . Ran into couples, families and a wedding party. A must go see whether you live in the city or a tourist.
