Walking the peaceful garden trails you can admire the roses, lush green trees, wildflowers, and rhododendrons, or enjoy the relaxing sounds of the fountains and waterwheels.

  • Spend a free afternoon exploring nature on well-groomed park grounds and observe all sorts of wildlife like groundhogs, and hawks in trees or just feed the Chipmunks! ;)

  • Beautiful garden spread across a vast expanse. You would feel you're far away from the city. The trail running across a stream of water is amazing especially during autumn season and winter season. During autumn you can experience the amazing fall colours and in winters it's like a winter wonderland. The garden shares common parking with the Toronto Botanical Garden and has lots of spots available most of the time...the entry is free to the Edwards Garden .
  • We've visited Edwards Gardens many times over the years, but how beautiful it is never gets old! I personally love seeing the big willow trees on the property; somehow they seem to make things feel more calm and peaceful. The flowers planted throughout the gardens are obviously pretty too, and the lawns are nicely manicured all the time. Benches are dotted across the many paths and in different areas of the gardens, and there are plenty of spots to set up a picnic blanket. The trees and gazebos also allow for shade on hot, sunny days. I believe the garden cafe (open between spring and fall) offers drinks, baked goods, and gifts, with outdoor seating in the courtyard. Washrooms are also available at the cafe. Parking is paid, but proceeds go towards maintaining the gardens.
