It was terrible. There was garbage everywhere and the flowers were not even nice. I would never have gone if I had known the place was so crummy.

While requires a car for most (long TTC journey otherwise) well worth the trip. Gardens are beautiful but also the upper park area is a hidden area for rest, picnic or playing with the family

Love, love going to the park anytime of year. Fall is the best with the leaves changing and so much to do. Great for biking, hiking. I find a new path each time I go to explore and take beautiful pics.

The name "Garden" is misleading. The expectation of colourful flower beds and manicured lawns was belied. Many trails and paths inside were closed. There was no evidence of attentive care taking of the place. The restrooms were locked as they were under repair! The weather...More

I love visiting for the art, the atmosphere and for The Royal Botanical Garden's lecture events. There's always so much to learn from nature and from those who appreciate it.

You must visit Edwards Gardens because it is peaceful and serene. It is well taken care of and it is a beautiful place to walk with family and friends or alone. It will jump-start you senses and encourage to take more walks. It is breath-taking...More

Hide from all the city noise even for an hour in this little green piece of heaven. Edward's Gardens is probably my favourite park in Toronto and we love going there. Keep recommending it to all my friend's who still haven't discovered it yet.

Edwards Gardens is an amazing place. Not far from downtown is a Park which is as nice as any you will find in North America. In summer, ride a bike on the trails. In the other seasons, take a hike through the forest. You will...More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,

Free to enjoy the gardens, but there is a time-based self-pay parking fee that supports the Gardens. I don't recall that it is expensive.
