Lovely place to go for a walk in nature in the middle of the city. Quite often, they have special exhibitions open to the public and they have a great Spring plant sale. Great place to go for a picnic.

My family goes to this park at least a couple of times a year for long walks when the weather is nice. Mostly once in spring and once in fall. The paths are wide enough for many people who visit here so it doesn't feel so busy. There are good spots to rest or take photos if that's your thing.... More

within a beautiful visitor center that houses tropical and semi-tropical plant exhibits, the exhibits are well labeled and allow the visitor to compare varied species by environment. the surrounding landscape appears to have been recently rehabilitated and includes a great number of new trees and perennial demonstration gardens. there are some of the largest weeping willow trees we have ever...

Nice walking trail through the park, along a small river, the walks can be quite extensive since they connect to the Wilket Creek park to the south, and you can, if in good shape, walk all the way to Lake Ontario, along a path running through various parks. The Toronto Botanical Garden, filled with flowers, vegetables, trees, etc is next... More

This is a local spot and a great place to relax and get a wedding photo, but not much else. Would not travel out of the way for this.

The place is beautiful and you can walk through Edwards Gardens south into the park system that runs down to Eglinton and even as far south as the lakeshore. Edwards Gardens is lovely, but on sunny weekends, overflowing with crowds and brides/wedding parties. Makes me appreciate the unique ravines and geography of Toronto.

Edwards Gardens abuts Sunnybrook Park, giving visitors a wonderful opportunity to take in the garden, take a bike, have a picnic or go for a long walk in one of Toronto's amazing ravines.
