Royal Botanical Trails


Royal Botanical Gardens is the steward of over 900 hectares of ecologically sensitive natural lands. These sanctuaries do not generate revenue for The Gardens yet they are very costly to manage. The parking fee program was developed to help build revenue for the maintenance of these properties. Proceeds from the parking fees go directly toward the stewardship of our natural lands, which includes maintenance of our 30-kilometre trail system. A fee of $1/hour is required at all trailheads. The machines do not provide change and accept cash only. A trailhead parking pass is free with membership.
