Beautifully manicured gardens as well as very natural planting. Great visitors centre. Gift shop with lots of unique items. Special events going on, regularly, check website for details. Saturdays can be very busy with weddings. Great place for families.

This was our first stop when we arrived in Toronto after a six hour drive. With more than 30 degrees outside, we thought it would be nice to have lunch in a quiet place, to relax a little bit before facing the scorching heat downtown. The garden is nice in itself, we especially loved the stone stair that climb between... More

A great place to visit during the week or on the weekend. Take a picnic lunch with the kids or your special some one and sit back to enjoy the scenery. I like the openness to the park as well water features. It really is a beautiful spot just north of the city.

If you were an amateur photographer like me you would love that garden. There are lots of flowers and landscape for your camera. Besides, there are lots of parking space. Flowers like tulips and other kinds. There is also a Botanic garden there and all sorts of wild life.

Beautiful gardens of varying variety. Great to be able to walk in nature in the city. Thursday nights are also wonderful with the free concerts.

It is a very nice park. But, you can walk the whole thing in 40 minutes...unless you want to go down the trail to Sunnybrook and have to work your way back, which is less fun. It would be nice to have a larger garden of fruits and vegetables, with labels, to teach children.

Edwards Gardens is such a hidden treasure, free and beautiful, with lovely attractive plants. It is an ideal place for gathings, leisure walks and most importantly, fresh air and a relaxing atmosphere. We are very lucky to have such a lovely place to visit in the middle of the city.

We try to come here at least once a year. Summer is great with all the flowers and that's what makes this place a favorite spot for wedding pictures. We also like the trails in the winter for snow shoeing. In either case you should make it out here to see what everyone is talking about. FYI if you want... More

Went on a Summer Saturday and even though there were many wedding parties there, we found so many different cut-offs that it was easy to go off on our own. Lots of shade too. Many benches to rest on. Highly recommend a visit, even if you are not getting married there.
