This is a lovely spaces that spans for acres. Take a stroll in nature beside the brook. Continue on the trail for more excitement. Bikes are permitted. Bring a blanket for a picnic. There's lots of shade. It's busy in the summer with weddings and wedding photo shoots.

Edwards Garden is just north of Toronto in a really nice part of the city. It's surrounded by beautiful big houses. The garden itself is very well maintained and quite large. Many brides were having wedding pictures taken there. If you go on a weekend, parking maybe a challenge as its a popular spot. You'll also have to search a... More

In the middle of the City yet far away from the busy and traffic jammed streets lies a beautiful piece of heaven... where you can meditate, read your a book, stroll, ride your bike or enjoy the beautiful flowers and green fields with myriad of plants, trees, hills and plateaus.. a creek runs through the garden and bridges along the...

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.
