A couple hours in this garden and you feel fully recharged.
This is a good size garden and close to downtown. It is easy to get there on public transportation

I somewhat enjoyed our time at the botanical gardens, it was beautiful and very well kept. They also had some interesting exhibits on, but the vast majority I didn't find all that interesting.

It's located very conveniently near a Metro station, so it was easy to get to and from.

So beautiful and amazing!The Chinese Garden reopened last year after 3-year renovation. It's the biggest Chinese Garden out of Asia.

Considering the short growing season in Montreal the staff here have achieved outstanding displays. There was wonderful colour in the main areas but also hugely diverse areas as well particularly ones showing traditional vegetation types of this part of Canada. There was also an excellent vegetable and fruit area plus even a section on poisonous plants. The gardens are children friendly with lots to keep them occupied. There were pleasant areas to sit and relax when the heat became too much. All in all a very pleasant 3 hours.
