Avoid this place, we saw a homeless couple take a dump right outside the conservatory. I didnt feel like walking through the garden after that!

These gardens are in a Conservatory with large splashes of colours, many different groupings, from cactus through to tropical. Displays of flowers are made in different shapers, fish pond, turtles, flowers I have never seen before. Absolutely recommended - it is free to visit.

This beautiful site was full of beautiful flowers of every kind. They are well tended and in full bloom. A great place to feel spring in the air when Mother Nature is taking her time outside.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

My belief would be that any organization which is not an animal rescue group would reject gifts of amphibians, animals, etc for fear of spreading bacterial disease among both the other amphibians or the flora.
