  • The wheelchair gets stuck on the uneven paths. I thought the children's garden would be wheelchair friendly, but sadly it was not. There are children in wheelchairs that would love to get up close.....  more »
  • Beautiful well worth the trip. Gorgeous scenery and flowers. Nice place to walk. Lots of places to rest and sit as well  more »
  • I went there on April 1, 2017. It is a very nice and well maintained garden right in the heart of Toronto. Although I visited in early spring and everything was still grey but the overall ambience was awesome. Wooden bridges further adds to an antique look. Please note that washrooms are still closed for the season so plan accordingly.
  • This is a great park with open spaces to run and play. They also have bridge crossings that traverse the creek. There's a learning center for kids to check out how composting works, how butterflies come to be, etc. It's a great park in the middle of the city next to downtown. You also don't hear much of the local traffic at all!
