Meticulously cared for green space worthy of a an hour or two to meander about peacefully away from the hordes on the main thoroughfares. I'm not much of a flower guy and even I appreciate the diligent care and beauty this attraction offers. See if for a refreshing change of pace.

The flowers and gardens are beautiful and well cared for. It was a pretty way to spend an afternoon, walking in the garden, taking photos and walking to Bow Falls.

The flowers were so vibrant. The park has many paths overlooking the township, with many seats to sit and take in the views. In front of the Administration building a chipmunk was happy to be photographed by the none locals.

The gardens were undergoing some refurbishment when we were there, but generally what we saw was lovely. Free!

Every year the National Park gardeners make stunning gardens of fabulous colours with typical perennials. The log pergolas and gazeos have a log of history attached to them. Well worth a stop and take a moment to see this beautiful landscape of colour in the middle of Mother Nature's work.

the garden itself is not overly spectacular. there's more green grassy space than flowers but it's a beautiful place nonetheless. What's amazing is that it lets you overlook the downtown of Banff so you can shoot pictures with a beautiful mountain in the background. this is a nice place for a short stop but there's not much to see. if...

I have walked by here many times but never thought to stop and see what it had to offer... until now. It is a little oasis away from the hoards of tourists in a nice peaceful and calming gardens. Cute little benches scattered throughout to enjoy the alone time and the scenery. Very glad I stopped in. Well maintained and... More

We visited Banff in June and made a stop at cascade gardens. This is a nice, peaceful garden at the end of Banff ave. You can catch the roam bus to a stop near there, or walk about 10mins from Banff town, across the bow river bridge. The garden is surrounded by a fence and has large wrought iron gates,... More

The garden was nice but wit such a significant land area this could be better. We noted that the authorities are working towards making the gardens more beautiful. This can certainly be a better attraction. The signage to the gardens is also not clear as there is a large Government office in the front. From the Cascade Gardens one has... More
