Royal Botanical Gardens is Re-Opening

The Arboretum at Royal Botanical Gardens re-opens on Wednesday, May 27 for limited access, and here is everything you need to know to plan your visit.


Welcome Back, Royal Botanical Gardens!


Royal Botanical Gardens is thrilled to welcome visitors back, starting with the re-opening of their beautiful Arbouretum. To mark the occasion, RBG will offer a discounted admission through June 4, 2020.

Your admission will include access to the Arboretum and select looped trails. To help reduce crowding, access to North Shore Cootes Paradise trails will be restricted through admission to the Arboretum.


What To Expect When You Visit RBG


Admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and the number of visitors will be limited to the number of parking spots in the parking lot. If the lot is full, so it the Arbouretum.

Royal Botanical Gardens is a very popular attraction at this time of year, so plan for the best, but be aware you may not get in if you visit at peak times. The opening hours are from 10 am until 5 pm, and the last admission is at 4 pm.

In order to help as many visitors enjoy the beauty of the Arbouretum, the RBG is asking visitors to limit their stay to 1 hour.





Provincial mandates for the safety of all visitors are still in place. Keep your distance, more than 6 feet, from others. The staff at Royal Botanical Gardens will be wearing PPE and you should, too.

Portable washrooms and hand sanitizer will be available for visitors.



RBG Admission:

  • Adult: $15
  • Senior / Student: $13
  • Child (age 4-12): $8
  • Family rate (2 adults and 2 children under the age of 18): $40
  • RBG Members FREE

Admission at entry is limited to debit and credit transactions. General admission tickets are available online at but no priority access will be given to a pre-purchased ticket.
