About Toronto Botanical Garden

A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN OASIS IN THE CITY

Toronto Botanical Garden is a charity that connects people to plants, providing opportunities for plant-centred learning, conservation and research, inspiring us all to live in harmony with nature. The beauty of our gardens and ever-changing seasonal canvas makes the Toronto Botanical Garden the perfect setting for any event.

The George and Kathy Dembroski Centre for Horticulture, renovated in 2005, won a Toronto Green Award and received a silver-rated LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Design). The building exhibits an impressive 5,000 square foot glass pavilion, topped with a sloping green roof which helps reduce heating and cooling costs and manages storm water runoff.

The two indoor halls with adjoining private, open-air garden courtyards are ideally suited for weddings, social occasions and other private functions. The beauty of the surrounding botanical gardens is ideal for wedding or engagment photos.

The Westview Terrace is a beautiful outdoor gathering space that is available as an add-on to a Garden Hall or Floral Hall rental. It features a waterfall, water channel and is surrounded by Japanese maples.

The Perennial Border is suitable for outdoor ceremonies and small receptions. This 60’ x 20’ lawn is surrounded by tall perennial flowers and lush foliage.

    A Great Wedding Day!!

    The grounds at the Toronto Botanical Garden were beautifully maintained. Great for pictures. The patio was beautifully set up for drinks before the reception and the hall was lovely. Our caterer and DJ were able to set up and perform their tasks without disruption. A great experience.

    Our dream wedding

    We had a small and intimate wedding ceremony at the Toronto Botanical Garden's Perennial Border. The ceremony was followed by a lunch reception in the Garden Hall patio. I've always wanted a garden wedding and Patricia Chevers made it happen and exceeded my expectations. She was a pleasure to work with and ensured that all of my requests were met. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.

    November Wedding - Toronto Botanical Garden

    We absolutely loved this venue for our wedding on November 2nd. We especially liked how private the space was, and that we were the only event being held that day. Working with the team was fabulous - Curtis made our lives so easy and was such a delight. It is a space that you can really make your own. Would highly recommend it.

    Great Venue

    We had both our ceremony and reception at the Toronto Botanical Garden on the Labour day long weekend. The venue was excellent, and they were very accommodating to our needs. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a place that can host a larger wedding. The photos we got taken on the grounds turned out exceptional! Be aware that the venue tends to book fairly early, so do look to book well in advanced. It is also important to note that the ceremony space is much smaller than the reception hall.

    First Wedding Anniversary Celebration

    The Gardens were lovely, as always. Our event coordinator was extremely helpful and accommodating. The catering staff were friendly, helpful and also very accommodating to all our needs. The food was fabulous and the room was beautiful. Everyone had a fantastic time.Should we need such a venue again, we would not hesitate to use Curtis and Toronto Botanical Gardens. They would be our first choice.
