Allan Gardens is one of those places during winter in Toronto where you want to spend some time with your friends and family, especially if you are a big lover of photography. All Gardens have hundreds of flowering plants put on display during winter.
I was recently in Toronto to celebrate Christmas and new year. On Christmas days, when there is nothing much to do if you want to go out, Allan gardens is one of those places which will be open and where you want to spend time with your family and friends. During Christmas and new year, there are also special lightings in the garden
