Mark’s Choice Through the Garden Gate, is Toronto’s largest tour of private gardens. The self-guided tour format enables participants to discover the gardens at their own pace following a map and garden guide that contains descriptions of each featured garden. A complimentary shuttle bus is available for participants to “hop on and hop off” along the route. While you’re enjoying gardens, don’t miss indulging in gourmet popcicles by Augie’s Ice Pops located in select gardens.
Not only will participants enjoy walking the quiet streets of this established neighbourhood, while skipping in and out of gardens, they’ll have a chance to ask questions and learn something too! Knowledgeable Toronto Master Gardeners will be stationed in each garden to answer questions about the plants and the design features. Each garden highlights interesting plants and garden design lessons.
The tour headquarters is located at the Toronto Botanical Garden (777 Lawrence Avenue East), at the corner of Lawrence Avenue and Leslie Street. Ticket holders can also enjoy a stroll through the beautiful, contemporary display gardens surrounding a LEED® certified building, shopping at the Garden Shop, or dining at the TBG Café.
