About these ratings

Thanks to 10 large greenhouses — each tailored to a specific theme — the 185-acre Botanical Gardens is home to more than 26,000 species of flora and offers scenic year-round respite from the metropolis' downtown core. Spend some time strolling through the tranquil bonsai trees in the Japanese Zen garden or learn about the principles of yin and yang in the Chinese Garden, which showcases designs from the 14th to 17th century Ming Dynasty. Outdoor gardens include a colorful rose garden and a stunning alpine garden. If you're visiting with kids, don't miss the ever-popular poisonous plant garden

Located in north of Plateau Mont-Royal in Parc Maisonneuve (accessible via the Green Line's Station Pie-IX métro station), the botanical gardens open every day at 9 a.m. and stay open until 5 or 7 p.m., depending on the time of year. Entry costs also vary by season — a list of prices can be found at the Montreal Botanical Gardens website.
