  • Here is one of the best gardens in Montreal. Multiple thousands of plants in the garden. Also many kinds of themes. But if you want to be here in early May, it's not a good choice for visiting time. So many spots are still gardening and lots of paths are under construction. Even many flowers do not fully blossom at this time. Finally, the area of this garden is quite wide. You can also take yourself to eat and dining areas. The admission fee is not cheap. Drinking water dispensers can be found in many places. However, there are no snack shops or restaurants. I recommend that bring a water bottle and snacks. Mats are always good.
  • One of my favourite gardens across North America, and rivals some of the best I’ve seen in the world! Tons of pretty flowers, interesting trees, arranged with care in various smaller (and educational) gardens like the First Nations garden, Chinese garden, and Japanese garden to name a few. Large variety of plants and landscapes plus events like tea ceremonies and lantern festivals means I love coming every few months to see what’s new! I’d highly recommend the Chinese garden in particular with the large pond, multiple pavilions and bonsai (-like?) collection! I’ve come alone, with friends and with family and it’s always a great time
