Allan Gardens - Review

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.

Allan Gardens, Toronto Reviews

  • I love Allan Gardens. The place is breathtaking in the summer and in the winter. The plants are obviously well taken care of, the place is impeccably clean, and the "exhibits" are varied ad interesting. Taking a stroll here in the summer is nice, but in the winter, it's a real treat. Being in a humid tropical rainforest in the middle of a winter storm and then going back out into the beautiful cold snow when you're done is a really cool experience. I would highly recommend anyone visit this place! The operating hours aren't as flexible as I'd like, but on the other hand, it's completely free, so I can't fault them for that.

  • Absolute gem! Great variety of rooms and vegetation! Detailed mapping of history giving insight to the past. The turtles were a nice surprise. Just absolutely breathtaking every corner you turn. And it’s free! It does get a little muggy in the green room because it’s a green room. Great place for people of all ages! Can’t wait until the next time!!!

  • Such a cute garden! If you have kids you should take them there. There are turtles and all sorts of beautiful plants and flowers. It was so amazing to smell the scent of flowers and fresh green leaves as you enter and walk through the space. A lot of photo worthy moments within. Just so you know it’s fairly small but there is plenty to see :)

  • Amazing place in downtown Toronto! Real breath of spring during this long long winter! They are having spring Flower Show recently and set up was awesome - just look at the pictures! So many flowers of different colours! Definitely a must go to hide from rain and grey skies. Recommended to get here earlier as it's getting busy very fast. And bring good camera - this is a great place for good shots!

  • The botanical gardens are spectacular located in the middle of the park. The botanical gardens are surrounded by a large park, that has plenty of benches and water fountains. There are scenic plants, shrubs and bushes spread throughout the park. The park has two children's playgrounds and two dog parks. Lots of trees and wildlife. One of the city's hidden gems. A must see to believe park.
