Canada offers many attractions, but the Botanical Gardens would be hard to beat! This is truly a must see- go to place on you lists of travel "do's". It is small by comparison to many of the larger botanical gardens found I. Other large cities, however it makes up for size by sheer peacefulness, variety, and no crowds!! The gardens... More

This is an excellent botanical garden. We have visited it several times. A lot of care has been been put into it. We greatly enjoyed our stroll through the gardens. However I wish I could say the same for our visit to the Cafe. At first glance the restaurant is good. The setting is pretty. The menu looks good. However... More

What a fantastic place. We were fortunate enough to have nice weather to wander the grounds and enjoy the gardens - especially the ponds and babbling brooks. Major cities could take lessons here on what a botanical garden is like done right.

We didn't have much time to spend at the garden, so we just saw the butterfly exhibit. But we couldn't help noticing as we drove in that the grounds were gorgeous. There were human figures "sculpted" out of plants—or more precisely, grown out of plants rather like "chia pets". I wish we could have spent more time there. Maybe next... More

One might visit here to see the beauty of the grounds but there is so much more to this place than the flowers. Please take time to eat at the Café as it is just delightful! Also, the new Butterfly Garden is so cool.
