“Beautiful gardens and fabulous nature trails”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Always visit this with our friends,dog and camera in hand. Paths meander along a creek. Great picnic areas and lots of gorgeous vegetation! People watching is great - there's usually a wedding or 2 being photographed here on the beautiful bridges!! Don't miss this hidden gem.

“Little Garden with a lot of Beauty”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Ever since my first visit there, I've always loved Edwards Gardens. Even though it's very small, there is a lot of things to see there, ranging from a small creek flowing through the park to weeping willow trees decorating the park.

“Small Wonder”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

I fall in love with this place the first time I visited it! The garden is beautiful. Butterflies freely sap the nectar of the flowers and huge trees are covering the water streams. The garden is so relaxing to stroll around and I enjoyed so much my photography...
The place is not that huge compared with other parks but for me, it is more than enough, small but wonderful!

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

There are a chain of parks that run north from Eglinton Ave. to Lawrence Ave., each with their own special character. Edward's Gardens is at the top, with lovely manicured gardens, flowers and shrubs and trees galore, and usually a wedding party or three, taking photos in the charming environment. Head south along any one of a number of trails, and the view becomes more rustic. There is a stable with horses to ride, a coffee shop/snack bar, and as you keep moving south, there are BBQs along the side of a rushing creek, and picnic tables to accommodate just you or a crowd of you. you can lay on a blanket alongside the creek and listen to the water rushing over the stones. Keep going, and there are more trees and shrubs and fewer formal flowers, with multiple trails to try that are of varying difficulty. There is parking ate a number of points along the way, and water fountains in the summer. It's a wonderful place to visit and should not be missed.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Edwards Garden is Toronto's botanical garden. Tons of beautiful plants and trees of every possible variety in an massive park system. Edwards Garden is also connected to the Toronto Park system. If you have a bike, roller blades or a hearty pear of shoes you can walk from EG to downtown toronto along the famous Don River/Don Valley. It is quite a view.

As well, EG is more of less across the street from the wealthiest neighbourhood in Canada, The Bridal Path with multi million dollar mansions housing the elite. Even the artist formerly known as prince has his house a few blocks from here.

This is a great place for a family to spend a Sunday afternoon.
