It was past the prime season, but very nice flowers and plants, along with many nice trees. There is a restaurant open in high season, closed when we were there.

l have been going to these gardens for many many years. Many couples use these gardens on the weekends for wedding photos. If you have never been, it is time to go. You can go yourself, but it is best to bring that special someone.

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
