The Jardin botanique de Montréal, one of the city’s jewels, is recognized as one of the world’s greatest botanical gardens. It offers a colourful program of events, exhibitions and activities all year long.

The Garden has a collection of 20,000 taxa that includes hybrid species and cultivars, 5,300 of which are in greenhouses. Of the 20,000 taxa, 800 species are on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. You can visit ten exhibition greenhouses, three cultural gardens, the Frédéric-Back Tree House and more than fifteen thematic gardens spread over 75 hectares. It is also the ideal place to enjoy fresh air and beauty.

Located just minutes from downtown Montréal, right near the Biodôme and Olympic Park, the Jardin botanique de Montréal is a veritable living museum of plants from the four corners of the globe.

Have a nice visit!
