This is a must see destination when in Montreal. The extensive plantings are well maintained, well thought out, and just beautiful. If with family the insectarium is also a great destination as is the biodome. This can be made into a remarkable full day outing....More

I love the gardens, inside and outside. When I have a free day this is one of my favorite places in Montreal to go. Plan to spend a few hours at least, there is a lot to see!

It was not the most beautiful Botanic Garden I've visited but it was pretty and had a great infrastructure (benches in some places, snack bars...).

This park has 4 or 5 themes plus a series of green houses where from time to time in seasons have themes in them such as Halloween and ''Papillons en Liberté''. I had the privilege to have a tour guide who gave so many explanations...More
