My favourite time to walk around this greenhouse is in the depths of winter, or in the early spring to experience spring flowers. It makes for a lovely wander. Tends to get busy on weekend afternoons as it's a popular spot for wedding photos. Take your camera!

I was staying at the nearby university residence and had 1.5 hours to do something that Sunday morning. The girl at the desk suggested the gardens, about a 5-minute walk away. It was love at first sight! The glass dome enticed me to go inside, but only after having a look around the gardens. Inside, I was met with tall... More

We loved Allan Gardens! Spent about an hour walking around the winding greenhouses, all boasting different, beautiful flowers and greenery. The smell was amazing, as was the upkeep of the plants and flowers. It was a bit crowded so if you're not a fan of squeezing by lots of people, I'd recommend hitting this place up early in the morning... More

a lovely and free place to pop in especially in winter. Small children really love it, especially the fish in the water features.

I always like to relax and/or walk around this downtown Toronto park. It is well kept and maintained. Just be warned about the countless homeless people that this place attracts during the daytime! They will approach you for money but will leave you alone when you don't pay any attention to them.

I love going to Allen Gardens on a rainy day. Extensive and well taken care of. An enormous variety of plant life from around the world. A photographers paradise of Flowers and Greenery. Definitely worth recommending to a visitor with time on their hands!

This conservatory was a pleasant walk. The interconnecting glass house are well kept selection of plants. There is some signage naming plants but could have been a few more. The boards explaining the history of the conservatory are informative but are somewhat dated. The park outside is calm but is obvious an area where some homeless people spend the day.... More
