Garden was an unexpected treasure located near the Expo and easy to get to on the train. Exhibits and flowers are beautifully manicured with vibrant colors and scents. A highlight in Montreal. This is a must see.

I usually go every year in June. This year was no exception and it's always an enjoyable time. I think that I'll be getting a season pass next year so I can enjoy it at during the different seasons.

Wow! Absolutely stunning! The replica of the Chinese garden is spectacular and should not be missed. You feel you have been transported to another time and place.

I didn't know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised by the Botanical Gardens. The Japanese Gardens were the most interesting, calming and thought-provoking to me and my partner. But there were so many other cool parts including the small, New Zealand, vertically-positioned rock...More

A wide array of plants are available and the numerous sections that they have dedicated make waking here extremely relaxing and a fine leisurely walk. The cafe has a great falafel wrap.
