Gain a greater understanding of the wonderful world of plants from a professional herbalist. Hands-on, interactive workshops teach you about the therapeutic, cosmetic and culinary benefits of herbal plants. Be inspired as you wander through the Butterflies of the World pavilion and various themed gardens. Take a moment to stop and listen to the bubbling waters of the Flowery Brook; discover the little secrets hidden in the Alpine Garden; take a rest under the natural roof of the Shade Garden. Khronos, the Celestial Garden, will have you exploring time and space. Enjoy an aromatic cup of herbal tea to round out your visit, while the beauty of the gardens puts you at peace. Come and enjoy a healthy meal on the patio at Café Fora.

Great place to visit for pictures!

We were there a little early in the season before most of the flowers are in bloom. That aside this is a great place to spend time to enjoy nature at it's best. If you are into... read more

If you love nature, flowers and gardens, this is a place to be! Clean, friendly staff and you can actually take beautiful pictures there! When we visited there, there was a fox that followed us, not close mind you but I think he wanted to be in the pictures. LOL! They even have gazebos where you can sit and breathe... More

This an annual event held at the gardens. The setting was beautiful and the violin music was very good. A box lunch was included with the performance.

These weren't the biggest botanical gardens we visited on our recent trip, but they were nevertheless worth the detour we had to take to reach them. The "plant sculptures" such as the bison and the hand are quite unique and add to their charm. It is a good place to stop and recharge/de-stress for a couple of hours if you... More

I would just write, "JUST GO" but I need 100 charters. The gardens are well kept, the staff is very helpful and friendly and it's a fair price. Like I said...Just go.

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
