Edwards Gardens attached to the Toronto Botanical Gardens

Between the two gardens it is very nice. Like with any gardens, it depends on the time of year and end of June is pretty good. Nice gift shop and Aviary

The landscape and setting is great for photography and wedding photo and just roaming along the path and trails. Beautiful flowers and landscape is worth for spending 40 minutes there for tourist if you do not intend to walk the trails that lead to downtown.

We like to stroll through the gardens and explore some of the adjoining path. This month we happened upon groundhogs and weasels.

The parking and gardens are lit up evening into the night but watch out! If you stay after midnight you get a hefty ParkingTicket $100.00. The park may seem a good oasis but on a nice summer night you could get stung by a Toronto Cop! Then you go to court and ask for a trial because the parking and... More

This is my favourite place in the entirety of Toronto. I've gone to this garden since I was about 6 or 7 years old and it really feels like a separate place from the city. In the summer, the flowers are all in bloom and the entire area is pretty much a cultivated garden/field plus some wooded area. Great for... More

Nice garden. Close enough to downtown. Wear some walking shoes or sneakers to get there. Not a huge place, but not small either. Nice variety of plants, flowers, and cactus. There's nothing to eat on the grounds, but plenty of places surrounding it. Give yourself a couple hours to see everything, not counting relaxing on the park benches.

Edwards Gardens is an oasis amid the churning nightlife of Toronto! Beautiful day and night, with every flower imaginable, Edwards Gardens offers a respite from the noise & crowd of the big city. Highly recommend!

Nice walking trails and lovely gardens. Spotted lots of birds, chipmunks, squirrels and an unknown rodent. Watch out for cyclists who are not supposed to be on the walking trails.
