Edwards Gardens, particularly in late Spring, is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. There are many walking paths, benches and even a good outdoor cafe.

Easily accessible by public transport. Very tranquil and beautiful with lots of different plants and garden types. The creek is very lovely. Great place for engagement photos. Every time I come here, I leave feeling in awe of nature and it's variety and beauty.

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,

It is not necessary. I have never done so but I have noticed people walking with guides and it would be interesting to do this.
