Take a combined ticket in the bio dome and this attraction is the best!! It takes a minimum of 4 hours to do justice toe garden. China garden and green houses are a must see.

Simply one of the greatest horticultual experiences of my life. Huge, every country represented had their own unique type of sculptured gardens - maybe it was a special time; however, it was breathtaking nonetheless.

My 15 year old daughter was the one who chose to visit the Botanical Gardens on our trip to Montreal. There is a parking lot adjacent to the park but it does cost $12. The park is across from Olympic Park, the site of the 1972 Olympics. So you can keep your car parked here if you want to visit... More

Soooo beautiful! I would recommend comfortable shoes to walk in, and bring something to drink (drinks there were a bit expensive, and you have to walk all the way to the front to get something) ....oh and its a short walk from the metro.

At first, I was "OK" about spending the morning walking around a "garden"....but once we arrived, I was wowed. It is enormous! It really does take all day to go through all the various gardens and exhibits. The Chinese and Japanese gardens, in particular, are stunning. We also really enjoyed the insect house. Unfortunately, we did not budget enough time,... More

We went there after looking at the pictures posted here and got disappointed and wasted all the money. The characters shown crafted in plants was available for one one year so it was no longer there. After being at longwood garden in PA, this was nothing compared to it.

We went here with our three smallish kids (5, 8, 11) and spent most of the afternoon. Earlier in the day we saw the planetarium and biodome and then walked over to see the botanic gardens and insectarium. Note that your ticket for the botanic gardens includes the insectarium. First, the botanic gardens are much larger than I expected. Most... More

This place is massive and we only did the Chinese and Japanese Gardens (recommended by previous TA posters) in the 2.5 hours spent here. We bought the "a la carte" combo tickets to see the Biodome + Gardens & Insectarium. For just over $100 (incl. $12 all-day parking), a family of 4 can visit all 3 places which are within... More
