This 1910 park is one of the city’s most popular natural exhibits, six climate controlled greenhouses with plants from different areas around the world. There are two main reasons to visit. The first is of course the green houses themselves - tropical, temperate, palm, tropical landscape, and arid. But these are a side show to what keeps people coming back - the magnificent seasonal flower shows in Spring, Easter, Summer, Fall, and everyone’s favourite, Christmas. Each of these last several weeks. Check the park’s calendar to know what flower show is happening right now. Additionally, the 16,000 square feet attraction also finds space for an off-leash dog park and a children’s playground. The location itself is a beautiful place - tranquil pathways coursing through the Palm House glass and iron dome, with quaint bridges and endless photo opportunities.

  • Always try to make a stop here when I’m in the city. Open to the public, the gardens are always so fresh and luscious. The park is a great place for picnics or spend some time reading or people watching. Great spot to bring kids, friends and tourists. Lots to learn or just a lot to look at.

  • Beautiful gardens. A little tricky pushing a wheelchair around. Ramps are really steep. Had some live music going on, but that made moving around in the greenhouse area difficult (space is tight). Inside and outside gardens--very nice in good weather.

  • Really nice place, well maintained and you find all kinds of interesting stuff. It's a relaxing walk all year round. Parking on the street and public transit available.

  • Download the app PictureThis and identify every plant or flower you see her! Works great and is a fun place to walk around and explore. Curious to know how much changes between the seasons

  • Considering nothing in Toronto is free, the fact that this is free makes it high on the to-do list. A very cute experience with a great atmosphere. The building is very nice and bright with an aesthetic outside. The plants are labelled, which is nice because you can see where they're from. The turtle pond is a nice touch. It isn't too big so expect to spend around an hour here, but I do recommend visiting!
