amazing place to visit in winter

Beautiful place to visit in cold winter since outdoor activies are quite tough for baby/toddler (and the elderly). My family just love this garden.

We enjoyed the candle light visit of the Allan Gardens Conservatory. A secret well kept for plant lovers. Lovely Christmas displays, all the visitors were delighted! Compliments for the Christmas displays! We'll definitely be back!

The variety of the plan is amazing. Depending on the season that you visit Allen gardens, the plant will be different in colors or forms. The admission price is amazing for what you get... it's FREE. I love the little pond with the turtles, and the gold fish.

Loved this place! It's a beautiful conservatory in the middle of the city! It's very well maintained! You can visit with any type of weather. For the kids, they have horses and swans in flowers, as well as real-life turtles!

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
