Do you enjoy a lovely stroll in an idyllic setting? Then you’re in luck! From June 6th – September 12th you are invited to enjoy free 90 minute tours of the Toronto Botanical Garden and Edwards Gardens. The Toronto Botanical Garden, situated on 4 spectacular acres of land, is comprised of 12 themed gardens that are all on a scale of a modern urban garden. It is designed so that Torontonians can get ideas and inspiration for their own urban gardens. The Edwards Garden is a former estate garden and is now a public park owned and administered by the City of Toronto. On the uplands there are roses and perennials, while in the valley there is a children’s teaching garden and an arboretum on the upper level, with rockery below.
In addition to adding great beauty to the city, the Toronto Botanical Garden is a great learning centre offering courses, workshops, and lectures, in addition to providing access to their horticultural library to children and adults alike. The George and Kathy Dembrowski Centre for Horticulture is a magnificent building that plays host to many private functions including weddings and corporate events.
Come out for a free tour on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, rain or shine. Admission is absolutely FREE and you don’t have to register in advance. The meeting place is the Toronto Botanical Garden shop. The address is 777 Lawrence Avenue East. For more information call 416-397-1340 or follow the link below.
