The Jardin botanique de Montréal is reopening

Jardin botanique de Montréal

Espace pour la vie is very pleased to announce the reopening of the Jardin botanique de Montreal as of June 15.  The outdoor gardens (but not the greenhouses) will once again be open to the public after a thirteen-week shutdown imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Jardin botanique de Montréal

“The Jardin botanique is cherished by Montrealers on account of its great natural beauty. It also acts as a green lung in this part of the city. I am delighted that the public will once again have access to this space, especially families, for whom children aged 17 and under will be granted free admission from June 15 to August 31, 2020. I salute the work of Espace pour la vie, which has made every effort to offer a most pleasant and safe visiting experience in the present context,” said the Mayor of Montreal, Valerie Plante. To this end, the number of visitors entering the site will be reduced, and the online reservation of timed tickets will be strongly recommended.

Revised programming
Compliance with the new health and physical distancing guidelines forced the cancellation of certain activities scheduled in the Jardin botanique’s summer program. In this context, we will be offering a lighter program during the months of July and August that will give people the opportunity to reconnect with nature.

Planning your visit
In order to properly prepare for their visit to the Jardin, visitors are asked to consult the information page on the Espace pour la vie website beforehand. To better control the number of people on site, only timed tickets will be sold as of Thursday, June 11. It is strongly recommended that tickets be purchased online to limit in-person contact at the ticket office.

To ensure a pleasant and safe visit for everyone, Espace pour la vie appeals to visitors’ sense of civic responsibility and trusts that they will refrain from visiting the premises if they have symptoms such as cough or fever, have difficulty breathing, or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
