Toronto Botanical Garden offers an array of award-winning themed gardens spanning nearly four acres, designed to educate and inspire adjacent to Wilket Creek, Don Valley Ravine and Edwards Gardens. The gardens offer a complete range of innovative indoor, outdoor and online learning experiences for all ages and maintain Canada’s largest private horticultural library. The LEED Silver Certified Building with an energy-efficient sloping green roof and ecologically conscious design includes indoor/outdoor event and learning spaces, a garden shop and seasonal café.
Botanical gardens play an increasingly important role in the 21st century: they are public institutions best positioned to provide knowledge and understanding of the world of plants and the importance of plants and healthy ecosystems to all other life on earth. Toronto Botanical Garden is embarking on an exciting capital expansion which will expand its gardens, education and conservation efforts across a 35-acreage footprint that will welcome over 1 million visitors a year.
