Rather large greenhouse within the city limits. The price is Very good for a visit. The walkways inside are rather narrow for two way traffic. It is not the best part of town to visit after dark.

A real jewel...A beautiful selection of plants from different climates in an amazing over 100 year old structure, which in itself is well worth seeing. Wonderful that this is offered free to all...

We have been here before, and really enjoyed our self, there are so many beautiful plants, the staff that works there take great pride in making the garden beautiful, bring a camera, and take lots of pictures, there are even turtles, you need about 1 hour.

This was one of my favourite places to see in Toronto. Parking is very tough here so better off taking public transit. This is open in all seasons and lots and lots of plants!!!! Very well laid out.

We took a quick tour of the Greenhouses in February. They had obviously forced some flowers but the whole experience was pleasant and the different greenhouses with different climates allowed us to see varying types of plants.

We like visiting conservatories when we get the chance and we have seen some nice ones in other cities. This one is ok and on the smaller side. It is in fairly good shape and since there was no admission fee, I must assume it is publicly funded. It is well planted with tropical sand very lush. The centerpiece is... More

This is a great place to go any time of the year. This was taken in the Spring but I have found the best time to go is at Christmas. But they change it up for every season.

Allan Gardens always has many flowers, goldfish, and turtles to entertain both young & old. The tropical, desert, orchid, and seasonal display houses are full of interesting plants at any time of the year...especially on an overcast winters day in mid January.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
