The Montreal Botanical Gardens are located at the corner of Sherbrooke Street East and Pie-IX, in Maisonneuve Park, in Montreal’s Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie borough. One of the area’s major attractions is the Space for Life (Espace pour la Vie) museum district of which the Montreal Botanical Gardens are a part.
Other attractions within the district include the Montreal Insectarium (a natural history museum with insects from all over the world), the Montreal Biodome (which features four indoor replicas of natural biodomes found in the Americas), and the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium (an astronomy-themed exhibit space and theater).
Some other highlights of the neighborhood include the Saputo soccer stadium (home of the Montreal Impact, a Major League Soccer team) and the Olympic Stadium, which was built in the mid-1970s to act as the main venue for the 1976 Summer Olympics. Today, the Stadium hosts an array of sports and entertainment events, and the stadium’s inclined tower features an observation deck, offering spectacular views of the city.
Located in Maisonneuve Park, in the borough of Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, the Montreal Botanical Gardens are one of four nearby nature-focused venues that make up Montreal’s Space for Life museum district. The gardens were founded at the height of the Great Depression in 1931, as a make-work project at the insistence of local botanist and religious figure, Brother Marie-Victorin. Today, the gardens are considered among one of the best in the world, featuring over 22,000 plant species, ten greenhouses, and dozens of outdoor thematic gardens. Among others, these gardens include an Alpine garden, a Chinese garden, a First-Nations garden, a Japanese garden, and even a bonsai garden with a diminutive needle juniper that is over 370 years old. The garden is also home to a giant bronze lion statue called The Lion de la Feuillée, found near the entrance to the rose garden. The monument was a gift from Lyon, France, donated in 1992 to celebrate Montreal’s 350th anniversary.
Pairing a little taste of Europe with modern architecture, Montreal is not only picture-perfect, but also a great destination if you want to discover art, culture, history, and science with museums suited for all interests. With iconic neighborhoods to visit and new local attractions appearing regularly, you will never run out of things to do and see in Montreal.
