We just went there for the July 3rd, 2o15 weekend. They are doing so much work to this garden that it will take a few years to complete everything, budget pending of course. But even with the work the gardens are still so beautiful. Park in the back of the Admin building at end of Banff Avenue and walk front... More

Very nice gardens, washrooms in the corner, changeable displays, just nice to chill out and have a bit to eat and read. Keep up the good work

It was under construction but looks absolutely beautiful. I'm sure it will be great once it's finished.

I'd love to give the gardens an excellent review ... like I would have 12 years ago. The gardens themselves remain gorgeous and the flowers are well cared for and abundant. However, what's with the water feature? When will they fix this? So disappointed that the ponds and waterfalls are not here anymore. If you aren't going to fix them... More

The garden is current under construction right now so they blocked certain section. There are many beautiful flowers out there. It is not far from Banff townsite.

While out of season when we were there it was still a lovely walk and one could easily appreciate how it would be in a couple of months.

Absolutely no plants to see in late April so don't bother going until later in the season. However the views from there (as indeed with all of Banff) are very picturesque.

We really expected more. This is located downtown. There are not many stores over there. They have a food court with few options. Don't go with great expectative.
