In the summer and fall, the garden is very nice to walk through. There are some nice trails to walk through and beautiful gardens to admire with lots of beautiful flowers to take photos of. I actually came to the garden just to practice my photography skills and got some great macro shots!

Planned to make a trip there. But after getting out of the metro station, no one knows where it is. Not even the teller of station TTC desk. I was directed to ask the library, the people on the street, and a resident, and no one knows this garden even when I show them the map. Eventually, I was told to go underground to get a bus. After waiting for 45 mins and still not see the bus, I had to give up. This is probably one of the gardens that is most difficult to access. It is the garden NOT for visitors without the car.

The Toronto Botanical Garden has an amazing collection plants and they used every bit of space for their plantings. It is compact but it blends in with the neighbouring Edward Gardens. The main buildings blend in with the landscape and flow into the gardens; even the out buildings fit into the garden landscape. The Garden Café has a great selection of baked goods that are made with local, organic ingredients. The plants are well established and there are a lot of older willows and eastern red cedars in the park. The store has a lot of unique gifts available for purchase. It is living proof that you can do west coast style gardening in the Great Lakes Region.

Toronto Botanical Garden:- This is a Beautiful place for all and specially for nature lover, children too. What a lovely place to relax and enjoy nature. When the flowers are in bloom this place is a fantastic get away right in the city, with different themes throughout the gardens you can see everything, love the way they are set out. I am sure you won’t feel when your time has passed. This garden is not only for summer, why don’t visit in fall? What a lovely change of nature! That time whole area are become flower garden. Red, yellow, Orange, Brown, some are still green, wow! What a lovely since of the nature, awesome.
