    It is one of the prettiest places to see in Toronto any time of the year. It is the oldest park in the city built in 1858.
    I saw elaborate and wide selection of tropical, sub tropical and exotic plant collection not native to Canada like varieties if orchids and cacti.

    Inside Allan Gardens

    Allan Gardens is a small conservatory in the downtown area. Inside, there are many tropical plants, a cactus garden, a small waterfall, and a little hut with a working waterwheel. Entry is free, and while it's not a place that I would put on an itinerary, it's a great place to stop by and look around for those who are exploring the city on foot.

    If you enjoyed the gardens at Casa Loma, then be sure to visit Allan Gardens. Conveniently located downtown, the gardens have a conservatory with plants from the jungle, desert, and a variety of other habitats. In addition, the outdoor gardens are quite nice. Open 10:00 to 5:00, daily.

    Allan Gardens - beautiful flowers all year around

    Allan Gardens

    Allan Gardens has been around for over a hundred years. The Palm House, the domed shaped greenhouse in the center, was built in 1909. It is reconized as a heritage building. You feel like you are in the tropics with the warm temperature and the tall palm trees in here.

    The greenhouse is divided into five sections, each with different climates. There are some permanant display, but some of the flowers and plants are changed in different seasons.

    The best of all, admission is free!
