What a wonderful place to stroll about, most important is to plan a full day there to fully enjoy all the gardens and grounds

The place is huge. We will have to return. Wonderful green house exhibits. Outdoor walks through natural exhibits which have been cultured for years. Well worth your time. Expect to walk a lot. Seasonal exhibits add to,the need to return.

Went especially for the Gardens of Light tour, which was beautiful. Tour came with admission to the gardens, so we enjoyed the afternoon and the evening. Never disappointing.

By world,standards for botanical gardens, this one would not get into the top ten in my humble opinion. Much preferred the environment of Parc Mont Royal. There is a charge to enter the gardens here. Not so in the Parc Mont Royal.

the botanical garden is a must see desytination in Montreal. Set aside a half day at least and take your time to tour through the entire garden. This is a must see attraction.

Loved the Chinese Lanterns and these were well worth the visit, however, after that exhibit- they send you through a series of other areas - none of which are memorable. We selected 8pm for our time and the garden closes at 9. If we had...More
