Canada Blooms!

This week, we made our very first visit to Canada Blooms at the Direct Energy Centre. It was a day filled with unique gardens, beautiful flowers, and a very special children’s playground. Take a look at our photos:


Plan to start the day early. By 11:30am it was quite busy.

The on-site playground by Bienenstocl Natural Playgrounds is fantastic. There is a rock wall to climb, two slides, a sand box, musical instruments, planting station, and craft table.

The staff is friendly and my son spent an hour playing in the space. Because it is so enjoyable, I suggest browsing through the festival first, then making your way to the playground.

Bring a camera! There's lots to see and it will inspire your own green thumb adventures.

There are a number of food options available but there is limited seating inside the festival hall. I suggest bringing or buying a lunch and eating in the Direct Energy foyer. There are tables and plenty of available seats, making lunch more manageable with kids.

There is a marketplace filed with many garden-themed vendors. I even spotted matching gardening gloves for kids and parents!

This year, Canada Blooms paired up with the National Home Show so you can visit both festivals with a single ticket. Children under 12 are free.

Direct Energy Centre is easily accessible via TTC, Go Train, and on-site parking is available.

Are you planning a visit to Canada Blooms? Is this an annual event for your family?
