One of the city's favourite destinations is opening its gates just in time for the summer season. The Montreal Botanical Garden is officially reopening on June 15. The outdoor gardens, not the greenhouses, will finally welcome Montrealers after weeks of shutdown due to the health crisis.\n"The Jardin Botanique is cherished by Montrealers on account of its great natural beauty," said Mayor Valérie Plante.\n"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."\nVisitors will, of course, need to follow all the established health and safety regulations that we're all getting used to.\nThis includes a recommendation to wear a mask, maintaining a distance of two metres from other people, and allowing a limited number of visitors on-site.\nIn accordance with the regulations, the Jardin Botanique is revising its programming and cancelling some activities. Indoor greenhouses as well as the Chinese and Japanese pavilions will be closed.\n"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," the mayor said.\nOpening hours will also be revised, with the Garden open until 6 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.\nThe restaurant and gift shop will gradually reopen during the summer months.\nExcellente nouvelle pour les amoureux de la nature!
