After reading some of the so-so reviews of this place, I was slightly hesitant about visiting it. So glad we did! The conservatory is magnificent and all of the beautiful plantings were fun to explore. We also visited the children's learning garden there. Free admission...More

Great day activity, especially with a family. The park has two dog parks and a fantastic outdoor play centre for the kids. Lovely collection of flora. A nice retreat escape. Close to Yonge and College and the Gay Village.

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

And if you visit it during the winter is a lovely experience as everything inside is green and warm when outside is cold and white!
