Royal Botanical Gardens

Located 47 miles (75 kilometers) southwest of Toronto, the Royal Botanical Gardens unfolds with color, especially during the spring, summer, and autumn months. With in its 3,000 acres (1,200 hectares), the Gardens are a stunning nature sanctuary, with more than 1,100 species of plants thriving within its boundaries.

The Royal Botanical Garden’s Rock Garden blazes with chrysanthemums in October, while the Laking Garden flourishes in summer with peonies, irises, and lilies. The Centennial Rose Garden is a must-see during late June through early September. Other attractions at RBG include the Arboretum, the Nature Interpretive Centre, and a network of trails and outdoor floral arrangements.

The Royal Botanical Gardens hosts many festivals throughout the year, including the Ontario Garden Show (the second-largest garden show in Canada) and the Mediterranean Food & Wine Festival.

Practical Info

The Royal Botanical Gardens is located in Hamilton, which is southwest of Toronto, along Lake Ontario. To get here by car, take the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) to Hamilton; the drive takes about an hour. You can also get here by the Go Transit commuter train.

Allow for half a day to visit the Gardens; a little more if you want to have lunch or afternoon tea in one of the on-site restaurants.
