It offers a colourful program of events, exhibitions and activities all year long.With its collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, Frederic Back Tree House, and more than 20 thematic gardens spread out over 75 hectares, it's also a perfect place to enjoy fresh air and natural beauty.

So nice to have a peaceful place to take a walk, and see the beautiful gardens. Loved the Japanese and Chinese gardens. We were drawn to the Chinese garden, as we could see the area from the Montreal Tower.

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.
