Termed "The little garden with big ideas", the TBG is nearly four acres and features 17 "city-sized" themed gardens. There's a teaching garden, that provides a unique space for children to learn by interacting with the environment.

Since 1998, the Toronto Botanical Garden has offered school and recreational programs conducted in this garden, designed to stimulate children’s curiosity about nature and gardening through hands-on activities.
