If you fancy horticulture, then add Allan Gardens to your tour itinerary of Toronto. The park was called the Botanical Gardens when the Prince of Wales presided over opening ceremonies in 1860. There are five greenhouses on the property. The central one is the Palm House added in 1910. The park’s namesake is George Allan who gifted the land. Allan was the former president of the Toronto Horticultural Society, the city’s major plus a Canadian Senator for 34 years.
