A Place To Move & Breathe

Natural Science
Edwards Gardens in Toronto, a place we visit often, is a botanical garden in the midst of the city, a 30-minute drive from our residence. It has has miles of paths lined with flowers, shrubs, trees and wildlife, making it a perfect place to ruminate and clear the mind of muddled and conflicting thoughts. It has been a public garden since 1955, when the City of Toronto purchased the property from a private businessman, Rupert E. Edwards, proprietor of Canada Varnish Ltd., who, as the Toronto Botanical Garden puts it, “[desired] a place in the country…..with wide open spaces all around, with plenty of room to move and breathe.”
