  Tips for a successful visit

Natural Harmony

This autumn event sets three cultural gardens at the Jardin botanique all aglow. The Chinese Garden displays its traditional lanterns and shares a fabulous fishing tale with visitors, the Japanese Garden leads visitors along a meditative illuminated path inspired by the seasons, and the First Nations Garden features an intense multimedia experience that lets visitors feel the beating heart of the Cycle of Life.


Tips for a successful visit

  • To avoid the line-ups, buy your tickets online.
  • Plan to arrive in the late afternoon to admire the blooms and fall colours and grab a bite at our restaurant or café.
  • Come early in the week or after 8 p.m. on other evenings (you can stay up to one hour after the ticket counter closes).
  • Take public transit (Pie-IX metro station; 185 and 139 buses).
  • It’s much easier to use a baby carrier than a stroller on the path.

Remember that tripods are not allowed on the Gardens of Light path. Enjoy!
