This winter when the cold becomes too much, I suggest a visit to the Allan Gardens Greenhouse. You enter the main rotunda in the midst of soaring palm trees. To the left, a vast array of colour. Standing by the mini pond is so calming....More

If you have 30 minutes and are in the area, it's nice to stroll through the gardens, but otherwise, I wouldn't say that this is worth the trip. Five greenhouses (16,000 square feet): - “Tropical House” has a waterwheel and tropical plants like orchids and...More

I have visited the conservatory with my daughter several times. They change the floral themes to reflect seasonal celebrations. The winter display featured life sized skiers and skaters made out of flowers and plants and tons of poinsettias in every colour and variety imaginable. Wandering...More

As someone who lives in the nearby area, this area isn’t exactly one of the safest areas to visit. Many homeless people can be found outside, harassing those who walk by. Inside the gardens is a great variety of plant life, and a great “escape”...More

Definitely not in my top 100 for Toronto. Skip it. You probably have a better conservatory in your own city. Unfortunately, I’ve found a used needle here and it’s not the safest place to be after dark....

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this beautiful place while walking around on our first trip to Toronto. We sat and relaxed here a few times during our trip. It's beautiful and peaceful. We also went inside the greenhouse, which was wonderful!

The area to the east of the Gardens is populated by - to be blunt - drunks. Harmless but not something - as a former Torontonian (16 years) I would choose to visit as a tourist. There is a large dog park which is heavily...More

Very small gardens but very nice and peaceful. Well maintained. Ideal for taking a short walk with a date.

I go here several times every winter for "colour therapy". Outside is cold, grey, white and brown. Inside is warm, humid and full of colour. An oasis from winter.

Downtown
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
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

And if you visit it during the winter is a lovely experience as everything inside is green and warm when outside is cold and white!
