Perfect activity for a blustery January day. The greenhouses are full of flowering plants, but the pointsettas were beginning to look a bit tired by the time we visited on January 7.

If you're walking around and happen to be in the area, there are a few 'wings' or areas in the conservatory! Nice place to take a break and sit down indoors as well

Flowers in December...who would have known! It was a beautiful little spot to stop, free admission to go in and a nice way to end an afternoon of sight seeing. Worth a look see if you are in the area!

Great spot to walk through and see all the different types of flowers. A little crowded in spots with strollers. Festively decorated for the holidays

We brought some of our kids who live in Ottawa to see the Christmas display and they loved it. We've been before. So many gorgeous plants and flowers, all well tended. Love the turtles and the fish!

Enter a different world when stepping into the Conservatory, especially since I visited during winter. Has good collection of tropical plants, so I felt like home there. The entrance is free. Just great place to visit for everyone.

A great place for taking photographs. They have annual Themes with showcasing various plants of the season. On the first weekend in November, the Fall Show features over 75 varieties of Chrysanthemums! Read up on the history of the Greenhouse.

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

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.
