This place is nice for free and $2.50 a hour on parking. There is a cafe there and you can get ice cream, pastries, drinks and coffee. The botanical part is rather small compared to other botanical gardens I’ve been to but it’s free so I wasn’t expecting a lot.And then Edwards park is attached. It’s a nice place to go to kill a few hours.

The free admission to this garden and the adjoining Edwards Garden was a nice perk, and the parking was incredibly cheap ($2.50 per hour). Unfortunately, there wasn't much to see overall besides some flowerbeds, trees, the forest, and the stream within it.

It's more like a large park that's good for people who live nearby to go for a walk, run, picnic or bike ride. Or a place to stop by if you're already visiting the Ontario Science Museum.

This was a nice change from the pace set by the Big city of Toronto, calm breezes, chirping birds, beautiful flora. I was also quite impressed with how clean it was! This well maintained park isn’t the most exciting or adventurous for some, but it does offer variety and a break from the city, without having to actually leave Toronto.

In comparison to other botanical gardens i was not terribly impressed. Very little of interest to see . However it did provide a nice family outing during Covid times . I will have to visit post Covid to see any difference

It was our first time being here. We visited the Edwards Gardens Park inside the Toronto Botanical garden after our visit to the Montreal Botanical garden. Comparison wise the Toronto Botanical Garden was not as impressive as the Montreal Botanical Gardens. However the fact that entry to this park is free is a good thing. A lot of the parks sections were cordoned off maybe because they were improving the pathways to the forested areas.

Well ? What can I say ? Not really a lot to see here .... it’s small with few impressive installations. Maybe a nice venue for a meeting or for education trips for schools but for a Sunday afternoon walk it was a bit on the dull side. The areas around the park are nice for a walk and the connections into the trails etc make it worthwhile. Looking forward to returning in the summer to see how things have changed.

Nothing special but considering that the admission is free, it’s nice. Perfect outing for families, the Edward Gardens are attached to it.

Lots of varieties of colourful flowers. A very pretty place for a walk to cheer you up during these times. Even a lovely flower bed that spells out "Be Happy. Be Safe" using plants! (see photo)

Nice place to take some photos and forget about everyday stress.

Minimum parking fee is $2.50 which is good for one hour.

Recommended!

If you are at all interested in botany then a visit to these gardens is well worth considering. Within a relatively small space there's a huge variety of plants very sympathetically and interestingly presented with a strong emphasis on looking after our environment. I was lucky enough to be shown around by a delightful member of staff which really enhanced the experience. I also had the opportunity to take one of the free ravine tours offered - it was really interesting to get the background of these oases within the city. Combined with the adjacent Edwards Gardens this is a really worthwhile destination to visit whilst in Toronto.

This is a gem! Admission is free and there is an incredible shop with botanical and gardening related gifts. I was amazed that there were still quite a few flowers even at the end of October. The adjoining trails and Edwards Garden make it a lovely launch point for a nature filled day!
