Edwards Gardens (The Botanical Gardens) are my very favourite place in Toronto. My parents love that there is always free parking and the grounds are beautiful to walk around. There are tones of flowers, plants and tress to identify, trails to walk on, grassy areas to picnic and play sports on and a cute cafe to have lunch at.
Went there with a friend last summer-It was pretty fun. We went to a farm, catching butterflies, went biking, and a lot more. There are snacks provided with a lot of games, too. There is just a little too much of mosquitoes there, that's all. But it was summer anyways, so, yeah. Totally Fun :D
We shot a couple weddings last year in TBG and loved them! The staff were friendly and accommodating, the venue was clean and spacious, and the garden itself was beautiful. Looking forward to visiting this place again.
