When I went it was a bit crowded, people bumped a bit on the walkway so try and pick a day not too busy. There were lots of flowers and cacti to see. It is a cool spot if you want some nice pictures though.

An interesting stop while visiting Toronto, but fairly small and overgrown. One interesting highlight for kids it the electric train making a circle through the flowers.

We asked at our hotel where we could go to see something unique to Toronto but not a "touristy" place and Allan Gardens was recommended to us. It is really nicely kept, there is an amazing array of different types of flowers. It was funny...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

Looking at all the beauties around, it should take about 60-90 minutes. It's free and there's a restroom.
