Recently visited this botanical garden with my family of four, including two children of ages 7 and 11, as part of a vacation in Canada.
My wife and I had been there once before. I've always been impressed with this attraction, in fact it's been our favorite botanical garden anywhere. It's big and has many different themed areas. The Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden are spectacular. We didn't have enough time to visit the entirety of the park, so we focused our attention on those two areas. However it was difficult because there were so many diverting sights along the way to those areas.
If there were more time, I would have wanted to visit the edible plants section. I remember it from the previous visit. There was a coffee tree, a black pepper tree, and other interesting tropical food plants.
Our two kids were far from bored; they couldn't get enough. I could barely keep up with them as they zipped from place to place, taking photos of everything and posing for photos, insisting on exploring thoroughly to make sure we didn't miss anything. My wife has declared this garden her favorite activity of our trip. It was a consensus, this was a hit.
Bonus: the Insectarium is included with admission to this garden and is contained within the park. I will be reviewing our visit to the Insectarium separately.
Huge recommendation. This should be included in any visit to Montreal. Consider making this an all-day visit, or at least half a day.
