Edwards Gardens - Review

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.

  • I just absolutely love this place. I recommend that you pick a week day to come and walk around and admire the gardens. Unfortunately it's not dog friendly but you will see some friendly beavers! If you have kids please heck our their Teaching Garden up the hill. All the plants and flowers are labeled, great place to take pictures and the shop has the friendliest staff in the world. Don't forget to check out the gardening library!

  • Favourite in the city getaway from almost all the human pandemonium that goes on during the week. Very calming and almost feels like a retreat. Best times to go are during blooming seasons which usually start around end of May start of June depends what Canada plans on doing with its weather. Washrooms there are hard to get too, so before you visit, stop by the Don Mills mall if you plan on spending an hour or two here.

  • I've been going to Edwards Gardens for more than 30 years, and I still love it. You'll always see lots of great flowers and plants, especially in the spring. There's lots of wildlife, too. I've seen many rabbits, groundhogs, raccoons, and foxes here. You'll also see all sorts of interesting birds if you sir and watch for a while. If you're lucky, you might even see a gray catbird that'll sing for half an hour without repeating itself!

  • One of the very best flower gardens in Toronto! Must visit anytime from around May for spring flowers, through summer for the flower beds and tended plants, to September for fall colours along the adjoining Wilket Creek Park which has been beautifully re-engineered. The paths, stream, bridges and terraces all make for a tranquil and beautiful visit. And the visitor centre and shops with the integrated Toronto Botanical Gardens complete the experience. But just be aware that many wedding parties come here during peak season and vie for the best photo spots.

  • Attended the summer garden evening with Cuban band and salsa lessons free. Enjoyable night in the fragrant cool air. Vendors also present for a snack and drink. Chairs were provided. Just lovely!!
