Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) 26th annual tour of private gardens in Toronto. This year visit 19 exceptional gardens in one of Toronto’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, Forest Hill and South Hill. This self-guided tour can be done at the pace and interest of the participant. Complimentary shuttle buses allow garden-goers to ‘hop on and off” as they make their way around the garden route. If there are any questions, Toronto Master Gardeners are stationed in each garden to help identify unusual plants and points of interest. A printed guide and map are also provided with the purchase of your ticket and some gardens will even have QRcodes to download the full plant list.
NEW! Add some flavour to your gastro-garden experience by visiting Tour Headquarters (The Bishop Strachan School, 298 Lonsdale Road, Toronto) where three food trucks will be stationed and ready to serve their unique offering before and during the tour (additional fees apply).
