Has been a few years since been to this park, was rather disappointed, mind still pleasant to walk through but I noticed what used to green sure looked rather brown in many areas, also lots of garbage on the grounds. Still few nice places to take pictures.

Start at Edwards Gardens beautiful spot. Lots of flowers and picturesque areas. If you keep going south joins to Wilkes Creek park and Serena Gundy. You forget you're in the middle of a city. Pick a nice day spots for picnics

Can never tire of this attraction. Young and old alike will enjoy this beauty. Take a blanket, relax and enjoy the outdoors. Be sure to take a camera, especially during summer months. Be prepared for lots of wedding shoots on busy weekends.

Great for jogging, family picnic and having an experience in a huge historical park that is more than 100 years old. Worth seeing the place if you like nature or even interested in photography.

It was a really nice place. Lots of beautiful flowers. And we met this funny groundhog. She wasn't shy at all and she had a baby too.

I haven't been back to Edwards Gardens for such a long time. I got married in 1984 and had my wedding photos taken there. The display of flowers and greenery is still as lovely as I remember it from back then. Find a bench to relax upon and enjoy the beauty and quiet these beautiful gardens provide.

Amazing relaxing place in Toronto. If you just want to run away from the busy city of Toronto, get here and forget all your problems, get relaxed, chill out, have a sunbath, or just walk around and discover the whole garden.

In early May, there was an outstanding display of daffodils and tulips and fragrant spring flowers. Many fine photo opportunities and nice hiking trails through the Don Valley. Can't beat the price.
