“Absolutely beautiful, don't miss.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

If you love gardens, this is the nicest in the Toronto area. Beautifully landscaped, along a rver/stream, lovely perennial garden outside the Toronto Botanical garden Building, and free! A little bit of a hassle to get to, but worth it.

“New bridges in Willet Creek - worth trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

The park south of Edwards Gardens connects to Sunnybrook Park and the Bata Trail runs along the creek in a ravince. It is one of the few places in the city where white pines have survived. Because of periodic flooding the valley was becoming damaged. The central part of Wilket Creek Park now has a spectacular new set of walkways and the creek and wetlands are now protected. The trail and parking lot and fully open and worth the walk south from Edwards Gardens. A secret trail that goes up the east side of the ravine in Edwards Gardens can be found in the far southwest corner of the parking lot. It is not the wide trail down that is obvious but has wooden log rails, and tight switchbacks and rock walls - like you are far from the city - a very few other people in this crowded park. See if you can find it. From the bottom you enter from a side passage on the other side of the washroom from the bigger trail.

“Edwards Gardens is not renamed the TBG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2012

I recently read a review by Nancy H claiming that Edward's Gardens has been renamed the TBG.
That statement is incorrect. The TBG is a small 4 acre space located within the northeast corner of Edward's Gardens. The TBG focus is on perennial plantings. The floral beds and containers on display in Edward's Gardens are formal in nature reflecting it's botanical heritage. All are welcomed to enjoy this horticultural experience.

“Nature in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

Nice piece of nature in the middle of the city. There is a ravine with trails for walking/biking and it's popular spot for wedding photos.

“Now known as the TBG”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

The Toronto Botanical garden is an oasis in the city(Don Mills).
Stroll through the gardens,pop into the reference library or gift shop and come back for evening lectures. Piet Odulf's designed gardens take you to Holland and back. So much to see and do here,leave yourself lots of time.
