The gardens are English in design. Come Ramble!


features pathways and more water features including bridges. Very English in its design, a key attraction is a collection of rhododendrons. After 12 years and all this work,


Edwards sold the property to the city of Toronto specifying that it was to become a park. Four years later, the Garden Club of Toronto, which later became the Toronto Botanical Garden, moved its headquarters to the garden.


Occupying four acres, the Toron-


to Botanical Garden offers a wide range of educational experiences and events.


It has 17 themed gardens


including a knot garden and a green roof garden over the Dembrosky Centre for Horticulture. The Toron- to Botanical Garden also operates a seasonal café and a garden shop. The legacy of Rupert Edwards and


the entrepreneurialism of the Milne family live on. x
