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.

The gardens are beautiful. This is a great summer place to walk around. Bring your camera (Take pictures of the wedding parties) Just kidding. You'll want some pictures of the flowers. One of the many great places in Toronto to just walk around during the summer.

Toronto has an extensive park system that follow the course of the Don and Humber River systems. Edwards Gardens is part of the Wilket Creek system that is worth a stroll for lovers of flora and fauna. It prettiest in May and late September.

I love Edwards Gardens, maybe, because perhaps I have a long history with it. The first time I was at Edwards Gardens was for a wedding, it's a really popular spot to take wedding pictures of the bride and groom because of all the beautiful gardens. The last time I was there, it was just for a quick stroll through... More

Edwards Garden is very well kept, just don't plan to have a picnic there are it is not allowed. But there is a tiny café with a few things to eat/drink. Lovely for a relaxing walk.
