Avoid this place, we saw a homeless couple take a dump right outside the conservatory. I didnt feel like walking through the garden after that!

These gardens are in a Conservatory with large splashes of colours, many different groupings, from cactus through to tropical. Displays of flowers are made in different shapers, fish pond, turtles, flowers I have never seen before. Absolutely recommended - it is free to visit.

This beautiful site was full of beautiful flowers of every kind. They are well tended and in full bloom. A great place to feel spring in the air when Mother Nature is taking her time outside.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

And if you visit it during the winter is a lovely experience as everything inside is green and warm when outside is cold and white!
