In addition to beautiful gardens, wildlife, especially birds, flourish at the park, making it one of the best nature-watching areas in the Greater Toronto Area.
Edwards Gardens sits adjacent to the Toronto Botanical Garden. This former estate garden features perennials and roses on the uplands and wildflowers, rhododendrons, and an extensive rockery in the valley. On the upper level of the valley, there is also a lovely arboretum beside the children’s Teaching Garden. Wildlife, especially birds, flourish at the park, making it one of the best nature-watching areas in the Greater Toronto Area. Other recreational opportunities include hiking, cycling, rollerblading, and fishing.
This is a great place to photograph flowers the availability of certain species of flowers depends on the time of year, the length of the growing season for some flowers, and weather conditions. The gardens are constantly changing.
