This is a really nice park that gets really busy at the weekends. There is a snack shop a large community center type place and lots of places to walk. Bring some peanuts and try to sit quite for a while a place where there are not many people and see if you can get the chipmunks to eat off... More

I have loved these gardens since visiting them as a student in the 70's and they are still beautiful. The flowers, the plants, the trees, the wedding parties all add to the wonderful scenes that treat the eyes. My friends and I found that most of the beautiful gardens are behind the buildings with the trails to the south of... More

Our family loves this park. It is not too far from us. Nice for walking and relaxing. It has a river and bridges. Nice botanical garden with lots of plants and flowers. There is a small store for refreshments and snacks but it is too pricey. Also sometimes parking can be challenging, if so we park at the school nearby... More

Today's our last day in Toronto and we thought we should do something more relaxing, so our friends brought us to Edwards Gardens. I think it was more of a park but there was a botanical garden beside it. It is a nice place to take a walk, relax and hang out. The air is fresh, the environment is nice... More

A beautiful park right in the city - many connecting trails for hiking and biking along a creek that is part of the Don Valley area. The botanical gardens are interesting and very beautiful too. Vegetables grown here are given to the Toronto Food Bank. All of this a free but you can make a donation toward its upkeep.

Free parking and it's a nice garden. It also leads to a hiking path that you can walk between Lawrence until Eglinton.

Edwards Gardens' my husband's favourite garden, we normally go to this garden almost every weekend after our breakfast time, especially when it's sunny!! As we arrived the parking, it's been so impressive that we never have any problem to get a spot for parking; even we came almost noon time and crowds of people were around. Recently I found there...
