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.

There was a lot of building work going on when we were there so we may not have seen it at its best but I've seen much better gardens elsewhere. There had also been heavy snowfall before we arrive so hD killed lots of plants

Do not waste your time going in winter. The place is covered in snow and it has nothing to do or see there

We were there in mid July and there was lots of renovation work going on so not much to see. The gardens weren't that extensive or elaborate.

It's right at the end of Banff Ave, right downtown. You can't miss taking a photo from here looking back at Banff Ave. It's usually decorated with lots of flowers, but we were here in October and they were already pulled out for the season. Even without, it makes a great shot looking back at the mountains.

Gorgeous gardens and a panoramic view of downtown Banff. Quiet walking paths and grassy lawns ideal for families to sit and enjoy.
