Top ways to experience Montreal Botanical Garden
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie
Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie has one of Canada's most prominent Italian communities, with Little Italy concentrated along the convivial bends of Saint-Lawrence Boulevard. Known for its fantastic bars and authentic Italian fare, the domain includes the Jean-Talon Market, the largest public market in North America. Open year-round, sunny months see fruit and vegetable stalls set up outside the main chalet, while blustery weather draws crowds indoors to meat and cheese sellers, spices and truffles stalls, and for regional delicacies such as rare Charlevoix lamb. While the market dictates what's fresh for local restaurateurs, visitors can please more than their palates, taking in the Renaissance architecture and frescos of Madonna della Difesa, the picturesque Rue Saint-Rominique with its cheerful homes and splendid gardens, or the ornamented thoroughfare of Plaza Saint-Hubert.

True beauty
Jul 2020 • Solo
Montreal Botanical gardens is a true gem of the city of Montreal. Even though it has a fee to enter, bit the money you spend is well worth it. The area is huge and you would need a full day to really appreciate the grandeur and beauty of the gardens. The area is very well-signed and you know wherever you are at all times. This can be an amazing place to refresh in nature and truly appreciate its beauty. The Chinese garden was the most scenic of all.

The ate gardens with plants of special nature which can be interesting to those who are specialised in botany.

Oh man. This place is probably one of the most enjoyable landmarks I had visited in Montreal! Remarkable sceneries all through the park and walking through was never a dull moment. If you are looking to take any photos for any occasion, id recommend passing by here. You wouldn’t regret the visit.

Beautiful variety of plants
Jun 2020 • Couples
Beautiful garden, lots of blooming roses and different species of plants. My husband enjoyed gardening part of the park while I enjoyed Chinese garden the most. However those big plant sculptures were not there but that’s on us for not doing our research.

Yearly family tradition
Jun 2019 • Family
Montreal captivated us since the first visit in 2012. It became our yearly family tradition to visit. We stay for a week, sometimes more if the time permits. There is special magic in the simplest things to do. From wondering around at the Plateau area, having a picnic at Mont-Royal parc, walking the Old City, visiting the gorgeous Botanical gardens and the Museum of Art. The french culture in Montreal gives an unique experience while being in this city, from culinary to performing arts, language and lifestyle- it has everything to bring Europe on the continent. And this is very important to us experiencing and exposing our children to the wide cultural varieties in the world within a close and affordable distance.

best place to bathe in nature!
Jan 2020
I LOVE the botanical garden, but I especially love the greenhouse. I will never ever get tired of this beautiful lively space. I always have a blast checking out the diverse flora recreated in the botanical garden, it's such a soothing and fun experience. As a photographer, I've had multiple photoshoots there, and it was always a success. The staff is also very nice, and I encourage everyone to visit the botanical garden. Perfect spot for a date too :)

The lanterns are one of the best things to see
Oct 2019
The lanterns are one of the best things to see. Walk through beautiful creations that are both artistic and creative. This is a great family event to attend to as well as an amazing date night event. Note that when things are busy parking is a challenge and can be tricky
