Currently, without any renovation, this beautiful garden is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view. Of the gem of the garden, you can really feel you are in Japan at times.

It is a besautiful laid out garden and is very representative of gardens seen in Japan. Exquisite. Look for the evening light festivals during certain times of the year.

It is nice but only a small part of the Botanical gardens. The Japanese Garden is nice but on the small side.

The end of October was the perfect time to visit the Montreal Botanical Gardens and particulary the Japanese Gardens. The colors appeared to be painted on, and the fountains and pools reflected the color with gracious beauty.

There were not many exhibits like the Chinese Garden. This was a very brief tour. We were a little disappointed after having visited the expansive Chinese gardens.

Experience the tea ceremony with real Japanese, see the arrangement of the rocks and sand, bamboo sticks as well as plants. Better to go early in the day, when no screaming kids are around...

Visiting the Japanese garden is best in Summer when the gentle breeze blows over the former golf course. In winter, see the Bonsai collection inside the Botanical gardens. Personally, when winter becomes unbearable, I find it best to spend a few hours in this otherworldly environment that transports me to the tropics

This is part of the botanical gardens and is truly a quiet retreat in the center of the city. Montreal will be celebrating its 375 anniversary next year and many of the sites in town are under renovation and the botanical gardens. There is still a lot to see and experience.

Staying in Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie

Neighbourhood Profile
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.
