Beautiful park. Flowing water, ducks, the occasional beaver. Nicely chosen and maintained flowers. Great for wedding photos (we had our done there). Gorgeous in the Summer and Fall. After nice stroll here for 1-2 hours, can end up near horse stables nearby. Can then go to Shops at Don Mills for nice walk around and/or meal.

Had a great time walking around the gardens on a sunny day. Took lots of photos and learned of quite a few new plants. Walked further south through the massive property and found some amazing photo opportunities with a creek running through it. If you're looking for a nice botanical escape in Toronto, look no further than here! Admission and... More

The gardens are a great way to get away from the busyness of the city. There are many different places to take some great pictures of the scenery here. The gardens were very quiet, relaxing, and most importantly, clean. We were here for about an hour and a half, and it seemed like we were able to see just about... More

Very pretty place to take a walk. It is blooming with colours in the spring and summer however it is still nice to walk around in fall (because of the leaves) and in winter. Free parking. Easy access.

I have been going to Edward's Gardens for years. It is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. This time of year, the fall colours are about 50% (as of Sept. 26/14). Still stunning with superb photo ops. For those that enjoy walking, it is about a 20 - 30 minute walk, through lush... More

It is such a relief from the hustle bustle of the urban scene to come across this quiet retreat, and being a gardener just adds to that. While there are, no doubt, bigger and more comprehensive gardens to see, Edwards Gardens gave us the respite we needed. Certainly a must-see when visiting Toronto.

Protecting or preserving natural ingredients of the park and gardens are parallel to your need to preserve your healthy body or to acquire one in the first place. I think it would be silly to consume fried food in the gardens. Harmful artificial ingredients are not welcome here. The gardens have their own way of preserving natural beauty with the... More

We just went for a nice walk in Edwards Garden. It is a gem. Beautiful plants, trees, flowers. A nice little cafe is on site. The parking is free, donations are accepted.

The gardens are immaculate, the ponds and river is beautiful. Lots of wedding photos are done here. It's quite tranquil place to visit and to sit and relax.
