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.

Nice garden, good for families
Oct. 2020 • Family
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 flowers in bloom
Aug. 2020
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!

Small but perfectly formed!
Nov. 2019
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.

Beautifully kept gardens and free admission!
Oct. 2019
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!

Walk in the park

Busy, nice gardens but not relaxing. Probably because it was a nice warm day, but then again who wants to go when raining.

Just an average garden
Aug. 2019
If you have been to chicago botanical garden, then this seems just 1/4th of that. Not much of a feel of botanical garden, its mostly edward garden attached to it, which is kind of recreational area.

Wow - flowers, plants and statues
Aug. 2019 • Friends
Lucky us we were there during the ZimSculpt exhibition. The admission to the gardens is FREE, can’t beat that. The plants are well cared for and labeled. It was a very hot day and we were glad for all the trees and their shade. The statues were unbelievable and all for sale. I wish I could’ve brought a few home. They did have a few tables with some smaller works of art and well priced. This is well worth going to - it’s only there till September 8 - so hurry up.

You get what you pay for
Aug. 2019 • Family
This a free admission park. I automatically did a comparison with Hamilton botanical garden and it was no where near that. It's nice to spend 45 minutes here. Parking is 2.50 dollars an hour and that's kind of your only expense here. It's the same value you get here as well.

Park markings are terrible you can guess that where are you in. All the vegetables grown area was like without any care.

A beautiful nature walk.
Jul. 2019
We were there for a wedding, it was beautiful. The large hall needs some decorating but with special lights and center pieces is beautiful. It is air conditioned but it was so hot that day that parts of the building had a hard time keeping up - but still better than the 46C outside! The food was very tasty and I would recommend coming here again. They just transitioned to paid parking, 2.50/hour I believe, still reasonable.
