Walking through the Botanical Garden at Night was really magical. I can totally recommend visiting the garden of lights. Taking into account that it was already October when we visited the botanical garden, there wasn't much blooming anymore.

The light gardens were particularly beautiful this year and we loved the disco-ball-lit walk through the woods. Always a pleasure to visit.

Going hand in hand with the Insectarium, this place is the better of the two, with its thematic gardens and interesting layout. Versus everything else that we did in Montreal on our two days there there we probably liked walking around these gardens best.
