Reimagining the Gardens was an initiative led by the City of Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation Division, in partnership with the Toronto Botanical Garden to develop a joint Master Plan and Management Plan.
In consultation with the public, stakeholders, other City Divisions and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), a Master Plan Study is being developed which outlines long-term physical, environmental, and program improvements for the gardens, as well as a robust Management Plan to guide implementation and operations for the future.
Most importantly, we wanted to think holistically about the long-term planning for Edwards Gardens (as City parkland), the ravine system, and the Toronto Botanical Garden complex within Edwards Gardens to elevate them to the level of other globally-acclaimed gardens and cultural attractions in an ecologically and fiscally sustainable way.
