The gardens have nice walking paths and many of the local people were walking. The flowers and the gardens themselves are limited. The location is somewhat out of the city so it is difficult to get a taxi back to the city. Use Uber.

We visited on a public holiday in Canada and the place was packed. On any other day, with less crowds, this place would be idyllic. Beautifully maintained gardens with plenty of trails to explore, there's wooded sections, river sections, garden sections, information centres...there's something for everyone. Free parking.

You could be having the worst day ever and a stroll through these gardens would give you a new perspective. Highly recommended for an introspective stroll

Set in the heart of Toronto Edwards Gardens is a friendly public park space that has several formal gardens within it. Stroll along the paths past thousands of plants and flowers, see the waterfall, look at the trees and buildings all set in an oasis along a creek. The park connects to Wilket Creek park as well.

Visited on a Friday afternoon. Loved the fact that the park is close to transit. Well maintained gardens and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. As a person. With a disability, I think that a better job could done installing railings beside steps. Otherwise a great way to spend an one hour and a half.

It's a cool Park. I didn't see any special thing. It's good to relax, but there isn't any different thing to do. There are a lot of friendly squirrels and some beautiful places to take pictures.

I used to go here often as a child and I love coming back to visit. Beautiful, if not somewhat smaller than my memory. Summer flowers. Running river. Great destination.
