About Botanical Garden, Montreal
This massive, intricate and beautifulplant conservatory is the fruit of the labors of Brother Marie-Victorin, who’s mission was to "conserve, develop and present to the public living plant collections, pursue research activities, and educate Montreal citizens and all visitors in botany and horticulture". He conceived it in 1920, and it took 10 years of lobbying and fundraising before the garden was opened to the public. Regardless of when one visits there always something abloom here, grown in specialized greenhouses. There even an Insectarium for those who aren’t put off by creepy crawlies. And whatever you do, don’t miss the Chinese and Japanese Gardens. The variety, presentation, condition of the plants, and compactness of the visit are astounding. Whether you cover the entire park or just lounge under the trees, you’ll feel cleansed after a day here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Montreal Itinerary 5 Days.

Botanical Garden, Montreal Reviews
One of the best places to visit in Montréal. A must visit for any tourist. Plenty of nature and the area is huge. Plenty of space to walk or jog. The fresh air feels amazing here. Unfortunately I couldn't fully explore the area since it's very massive. Definitely will return. Bring your sneakers or tennis shoes if you visit
Loved it. The tropical forest was impressively made. The camouflaged animals were also very interesting. Finding them among the foliage was challenging. Children would surely enjoy it!
Always a great place to visit. Late September and into late October the Chinese lanterns and the Japanese gardens are full on. The Chinese lanterns were lit up and many were in the small Lake in the Chinese area. Amazing at night... day and night are completely different. You can even buy a season pass, so you won't miss anything. The metro / Subway brings you almost right to the door. Right across from the Olympic stadium which is easy to see from miles / kilometres away. Don't forget the Insectarium. Scary beautiful at its least. And if they ever play baseball again. Well. your right across the street. Go Expos!
This park this massive and was lots of fun. I enjoyed every bit of it in the morning. Then the Chinese light show they had at night. Was a one amazing day I spent in Montreal. You should definitely go there. They offer student discounts.
Beautiful place to visit if you're in Montreal. The gardens are well kept and serene. You can buy your tickets online if you want to avoid a line up at the ticket counter.
