With its collection of 22,000 plant species and cultivars, 10 exhibition greenhouses, some thirty thematic gardens, and teams of researchers and activities staff, the Montréal Botanical Garden ranks as one of the world's largest and most spectacular botanical gardens.

No matter what the season, visitors to the Montréal Botanical Garden are sure to be captivated by the colors and fragrances from around the world as they wander from the delightful Chinese Garden to the heart of the Sonoran desert, from the peaceful oasis of the Japanese Garden to the classically designed French garden or the woodlands of the Laurentians.

Parlez vous Français? Actually, you can get along quite nicely in Montreal speaking either French or English. I wish I lived nearer to this garden. It is one you could visit frequently and learn new plants each time. Not only do they have a nice Japanese garden but they have one from China too. Their Insectarium is unique.

Across the street is the stadium from the 1976 Olympic Games. Do you remember Bruce Jenner? Of course he is now better known as "Mr. Kardashian".

Note: As of 2015, Bruce is now Caitlyn Jenner.
