I think the best time to visit is during the Spring/Summer. There were a lot of section that were not in bloom. Overall I enjoyed my experience. I would definitely come back again.

We parked on the back side of the park for free! It does mean walking the entire distance through the arboretum, but well worth the stroll. Our mission was to see the Chinese lanterns, which never disappoints. They are most spectacular at night. It's far...More

The gardens were spectacular. Visited on a blustery fall day. The botanical gardens did not disappoint. Great place to spend an afternoon.

At first, I didn't see the point in going to the Botanical Garden the last weekend of October, but we decided to go anyway. As expected, the roses had already been pruned, the arboretum was closed for the season, and many of the plants were...More

A great place to visit even though it's a bit off the beaten path. Themed gardens like the Chinese and Japanese gardens are especially popular given their photogenic buildings and water features, Indigenous garden also a treat. Greenhouses are always immersive and especially well-appreciated in...More

We happened to be in Montreal during the Garden of Light show. They have incredible lanterns on display throughout the outdoor gardens. There are 10 green houses that one can easily get lost wandering through. The last one we found was decorated pumpkins! Just adorable....More

Questions & Answers

We will be in Montreal on Oct 30 & 31. I'm a little confused about the tickets for the Botanical gardens and the Garden of Lights. If we buy a timed ticket for the Garden of Lights -- let's say at 6:30 ( they start at 5:30)-- Do we need to also buy a separate admission to the Botanical Gardens or does ticket to Garden of Lights cover both entrance fees? Website for Botanical Gardens says hours on the 2 days we will be there are 9 am to 9 pm. We were thinking about getting to the gardens around 4:30, touring the gardens and then going to the Garden of Lights around 6:30 or 7:00 assuming it will be dark by then. Another question is that Oct 31 is the last day for Garden of Lights and is Halloween. Since we have a choice of Oct 30 or 31, which night would you suggest going to there? Thanks for your help

No, the entrance fee includes the gardens, greenhouse and lights show. 6:30pm is a good time for the end of Oct. I was just there and went to the 7pm showing which was a great time since it was dark enough to enjoy the light... More

It’s about 3 miles away, right next to Olympic Stadium. You can get there by subway, which is a short walk through Old Montréal.

I believe it was $20 Canadian or about $15US for adults. Well worth it. It was breathtaking. Kids were about $10 Canadian, $8US. Under 5 free I believe.
