Edwards Gardens

Relax among the roses, wildflowers, water features and large rockery of a beautiful garden that also contains Toronto Botanical Gardens.

The moment you step into the lush floral oasis that is Edwards Gardens, you will forget that the city of Toronto is moving at hectic speed around you. Enjoy the 35 acres (14 hectares) of colorful themed gardens, walking trails and water features. 

The gardens were once the private estate of a local businessman and are spread out across an upland area and a valley. Walk among roses and perennials in the upland section and then head to the valley for its large rock garden and wildflowers. On the man-made hill overlooking the valley, see the fountain and its sculpture of a woman carrying an urn on her shoulder. Among the other sites of interest you will come across are a waterfall, bridges, a water wheel and a well.

If there are children with you, give them an introduction to the world of horticulture in the Teaching Garden. Once you are there, follow the dinosaur footprints to the Alphabet Garden, where young visitors can see plants with names that begin with the letters of the alphabet. In the Dinosaur Garden they will find a model of a stegosaurus and the types of plants that would’ve been part of a dinosaur's diet.

See more flowers and plants in the Toronto Botanical Gardens, set within Edwards Gardens. The botanical gardens cover nearly 4 acres (1.6 hectares) and feature a number of themed gardens, including a kitchen garden and herb garden. Stop by the Beryl Ivey Knot Garden where hedges have been pruned and shaped into a variety of different forms.

Edwards Gardens is about a 20-minute drive from downtown Toronto and there is plenty of free parking on-site. Alternatively, come by bus or taxi.

The gardens are open daily from dawn until dusk, but close on some public holidays. Admission is free. If you’re visiting between May and September, go on themed and guided tours of the scenic location, some of which are free. For details, visit the official website of Edwards Gardens.
