Visited in the morning of Sept 4th. It was very hot. The location was easy to get to with the signs directing you to the location. If you take the metro you have to walk 5 mins uphill. My favorites were the Japanese and Chinese gardens. They had decorations that were very vibrant and went well with the surroundings.
If you are visiting Montreal for the first time I suggest you get the MTL pass on tripadvisor or viator. This pass will save you money and you will have access to various sites.

We really enjoyed the gardens. Unfortunately they were out of English maps, we found it a bit difficult to navigate, as well as not many directional arrows to follow

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
