“Still Beautiful After All These Years”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I have loved these gardens since visiting them as a student in the 70's and they are still beautiful.
The flowers, the plants, the trees, the wedding parties all add to the wonderful scenes that treat the eyes. My friends and I found that most of the beautiful gardens are behind the buildings with the trails to the south of it. We discovered the most unusual squirrel as you will see from the pictures.

“nice park”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Our family loves this park. It is not too far from us. Nice for walking and relaxing. It has a river and bridges. Nice botanical garden with lots of plants and flowers. There is a small store for refreshments and snacks but it is too pricey. Also sometimes parking can be challenging, if so we park at the school nearby which also has access to the park. It is great park to take pictures, every time we see couples taking wedding pictures.

“Nice garden and park to relax”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Today's our last day in Toronto and we thought we should do something more relaxing, so our friends brought us to Edwards Gardens. I think it was more of a park but there was a botanical garden beside it. It is a nice place to take a walk, relax and hang out. The air is fresh, the environment is nice and green, and you can have a picnic in the park! Good place to visit.

“Edwards Gardens - trails and botanical garden”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

A beautiful park right in the city - many connecting trails for hiking and biking along a creek that is part of the Don Valley area.
The botanical gardens are interesting and very beautiful too. Vegetables grown here are given to the Toronto Food Bank.
All of this a free but you can make a donation toward its upkeep.
