We went here hoping to get some respite from the terrible heat, so we didn't really have any expectations. We ended up loving our taste of bonzai, rock gardens, and Japanese contemporary painted screens. Having spent quite some time in Japan, I can say that this is a nice taste of actual Japanese gardens.

We went to the Gardens expecting to see the Chineses gardens most of all, but it was under construction without warning at the gate where you pay, (they could have warned all visitors) as it was not worth going at all, pond was empty and all was under construction, so we went onto the Japanese Gardens which were okay, but...

We visited the gardens on a rainly day and found tanquility and solitude. The gardens display a wonderful variety of annual and perennial blooming plants, and trees. The speciums arewell labeled. The information plaques enhance the understanding of the design and lay out of the garden.

Part of the Montreal Botanical Gardens, very relaxing and peaceful to walk around. Stop in the tea house and see the peace bell next to the garden.

Visit this place if you want a feel of Japan. This is a nicely-kept garden and it's nice to explore around this place and take some pictures. This garden could be better by adding more variety and colour.

The Botanical Gardens of Montreal is a smorgasbord of flowers and gardening styles. The Japanese has particular simplicity of landscape, water and other dynamics of color and sounds that blend together in a seamless experience of tranquility. Better put as a big ...WOW!

So much TLC goes into keeping everything so beautiful. I was especially impressed at how small the Japanese trees were even though some of them were very old. The Japanese Garden was created with the support of the governments of Japan, Canada and Quebec, the City of Montreal and several Japanese companies. "A Japanese garden is a special place, one...

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighborhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
