This is a bit on the edge of town but well worth the trip. The grounds are very accessible, green houses and rose gardens (although sparse in September) not to be missed. There is a beautiful bonsai garden and the newly renovated Chinese gardens with...More

The gardens overall are just okay in my opinion. The best parts were the insect and bonsai exhibitions. Interesting to see the willow sculpture art installation as well. I would have liked to see more information posted about the works to better enjoy the displays....More

We absolutely loved walking around the park, the temporary art installations, snacks with bugs, tropical forest with orchids. Needed about 3 hours. Definitely recommend.

With limited mobility one will only see a small sampling of the flowers. Transport goes and will not stop or even slow down. Gift shop is nice!

Loved the time I spent there. Even though the line to buy a ticket did not take too long, I'd recommend to buy your tickets online just to save time. The place is great and beautifully maintained. The greenhouses were definitely the highlight for myself...More

Well, after two years of postponing my visit to this place to show it proudly to my family; I was saddened (fortunately not them, since it was their first visit) to see how depressed the garden has become. I remember it back in the 90s...More

Your best option is to take the green line and get off at the Pie IX station. From there, walk up the hill, make a right on Sherbrooke and it's right there. Should take you 10 minutes to walk from the metro station.
