    Beautiful place to be hanging around all year round, the variety of botanic varies depending on the time of the year, there is always something new to see. The place is really quite large with both indoor and outdoor areas! The gardens all have their little theme - Rose garden, Chinese garden, Japanese garden, Alphine garden, First nations garden. It's a great relaxing hike in the Arboretum area when not too hot and plenty of people relaxes on the grass next to the water and otherwise. It's quite stunning and you really could spend many hours here exploring the different types of flora and plants.

    Very nice place to spend half a day taking a stroll. I went when they had plant sculptures which was even more amazing.

    The best time of the year to visit the Botanical Garden is during Halloween time at night when they have all the Chinese paper lanterns lit up. Great place to take your kids.

    One of the best gardens I've ever been to. This place is huge! The International Mosaiculture event was very impressive with awesome plant sculptures!

    The gardens are BEAUTIFUL! Third largest in the world! Rose gardens, dense forests, garden statues, and Japanese gardens are just a few of the highlights. This is a must-see!

    This expansive botanical garden is my favorite place to escape the city after a few days in Montreal. You can stroll through various themed gardens, including a stunning Chinese garden with authentic architecture, or hop on a small train to get a quicker tour.

    We had a magnificent time at the gardens...be sure to catch the Chinese Lanterns at night time for some spectacular pictures!

    You could spend the whole day here, if plants are your thing. If not, buy a combo ticket, eat a picnic lunch in the garden and go across the street to the Biodome.

    The Montréal Botanical Garden is beautiful, even in the fall when we visited.

    Such a beautiful assortment and layout of plants. Very easy to get lost, though. Take a map!

Description

The Jardin botanique de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, which translates to Montreal Botanical Garden in French, is a large botanical garden comprising 190 acres of thematic gardens and greenhouses. It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 2008 as it is considered to be one of the most important botanical gardens in the world due to the extent of its collections and facilities. In 1976 the Summer Olympics was hosted Montreal, and the 20 km walk athletics and the running part of the modern pentathlon event took place inside the garden.
