When I went it was a bit crowded, people bumped a bit on the walkway so try and pick a day not too busy. There were lots of flowers and cacti to see. It is a cool spot if you want some nice pictures though.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,

Looking at all the beauties around, it should take about 60-90 minutes. It's free and there's a restroom.
