Along with the Biodome (closed for renovations until summer 2019) , the Insectarium and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium, the Botanical Garden is part of the Montreal Space for Life, Canada's largest natural museum science complex and Montreal's top...more
We liked the gardens so much that we returned for a second visit during our one-week stay in Montreal.
The botanical garden is quite large and there is a lot to do—you can very easily spend half a day there. Our kids loved the Insectarium...More
I visited the gardens in July 2018. The best part were the wetland gardens and the small lake, lst Nations garden and the Japanese garden.
Otherwise there were very few flowers or annual planting beds - it was a colourless, flowerless experience. I dont know...More
These gardens are so interesting! There are so many different bits to them and the plants and flowers are just beautiful. Wonderful views and a good cafeteria (if pricey) for lunch. We could easily have spent an entire day here.
Go with plenty of time so that you can see it all. it is extremely well taken care of and preserved. the food and drink offering could be better: more restaurants with more variety and more reasonable prices.
We spent a couple of hours exploring the Botanic Gardens and the Insectarium. We visited in August when the spring/early summer flowers were done blooming but the fall flowers haven't started yet, but we still enjoyed our time. The gardens are huge - we spent...More
My family and I came here on accident. We were looking to go someplace else and we found this place. We were so glad we did. It was a little pricey BUT well worth it! It was so beautiful. You truly felt like you were...More
The gardens are huge so you need to allow at least three hours to see it all. We particularly enjoyed the greenhouses, the Chinese Garden that is the biggest in the world outside China and the Shrub Garden. There are plenty of activities going on...More
Went as a family on as beautiful day. We as actually visited on the day we left Montreal before driving back across the border. Great way to get your legs tired. It is a big place to explore. My husband and I had been there...More
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while
blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
