Came into the city for a photography day trip and was not disappointed! Edwards Gardens are simply magical! So many beautiful flowers and different plants. It is well worth the walk through to see such beautiful grounds. It's definitely a photographers heaven to take pictures of so many beautiful flowers. Will definitely be returning!

A very peaceful setting in the middle of the city. I love going to Edwards Gardens for the serenity and beautiful flowers and forestry. There is a nice little cafe where you can relax after a good healthy walk. No dogs, skateboards, rollerblades or bad behaviour is permitted. That adds to the whole pleasure. Great in the summer and fall.

I have been coming here since I was a child (decades). This is a peaceful garden, well maintained, and a great place to get away from the fast pace of TO.

Once the splendid showcase of Toronto Horticulture now a forgotten remnant. Thanks City of Toronto lack of funding for what matters - where the hell did the budget go to from here? Used to be the "go to" for what Toronto has to offer in splendid outdoor space.

A beautiful place to walk through and admire the magnificent trees and flowers. Excellent restaurant available. Farmers' market are set up on Thursdays during the summer selling fresh bread, farm grown vegetables and even amazing maple syrup.

I feel like doing some falls hiking with a few friends, so we decided to go to Edwards Gardens. The scenery was amazing, everywhere we walk is filled with golden leafs. It was so nice!
