The Botanical Garden is part of a larger "Espace pour la Vie" campus that is home to the planetarium, insectarium, and biodome.
With more than 185 acres of land, the Botanical Garden is packed with Canada specific flora as well as cultural gardens (for example, a Japanese Garden and First Nations Garden). The greenhouse collections are fantastic and diverse --from orchids to cacti. Lots of easy, wide walking paths make this a top-notch visit.
In the summer, there are festivals and garden competitions.
The Botanical Garden is undergoing renovation and will re-open in the summer of 2019. Should be spectacular!
