Two of Toronto’s four main gardens are at this single location. And together they are the beloved of anyone who loves any or all of the following: nature, landscaping, design, art, sculpture, science, mazes, horticulture, birds, bees, urban gardening, viewpoints, flowers, public art, museums and interactive exhibits. There are 17 themed gardens here, all large in size, all easily navigated. Just make sure you have a garden map.
In addition to typical cafe eats like sandwiches and salads the historic barn cafe also serves up wine, BBQ and craft beer on summer Thursday night concerts. The Garden shop has a terrific seat and tool collection, and most people want to visit it when the tour has left them bursting with garden ideas.
The guided tours offered by the garden are excellent. And the Weston Family Library is the largest private horticultural library in Canada, with its own art gallery.

Edwards Gardens, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
First time visiting and will definitely be back. Great place to escape and just walk around. Be prepared to do alot of walking. Plenty of photo opportunities as lots of gorgeous views to snap. There was a bridge blocked off due to construction but was still able to see alot . Ran into couples, families and a wedding party. A must go see whether you live in the city or a tourist.
Always a great place to visit. One of the bridges has been out of commission for months now but it is otherwise very well maintained. My kids enjoyed watching the little ducklings grow this past spring and groundhogs run around.
I have been here recently, really enjoyed the coziness, nice location to spend a weekend with your loved ones. The park divided into two major parts, botanic gardens and actual park with benches and greens all around. However, I only found 1 toilet and 1 water fountain, so make sure to use it first, although you might be lucky and find more of those. Ohh, there are a lot of children, be prepared or look for remote locations.
Beautiful and relaxing park for families to hang out on lazy weekend days. Lots of shades on a sunny day to chill and a nice cafe/bakery in the garden. Public washrooms are next to the cafe. Also a boutique shop in the garden for gardening things.
Nice hidden gem in the city. Beautiful plants and very clean. Nice park to go for a short walk to see some greenery within the city.
