Edward Gardens is a botanical garden located on the southwest corner of Leslie Street and Lawrence Avenue East. It is also the site of the Toronto Botanical Garden. Edward Gardens features wildflowers, annuals, roses, and an extensive rockery.

The estate's title was once held by Alexander Milne, a Scottish weaver who settled here after the war of 1812 and left in 1832. The land and the woolen/saw mills was obtained by Rupert E. Edwards in 1944 and created his country home. Edwards’s home was left in neglect and was purchased by the Municipality of Metro Toronto in 1955 and became Edwards Gardens in 1956.

Edward Gardens is located in Toronto's ravines, and is connected by hiking and cycling trails. The park's manicured lawns and well kept flower beds make it a popular destination for wedding parties to take photographs.
