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.

Lots going on, with the locals enjoying the opportunities provided. We were content to walk alongside the gorgeous Bow River and revel in the fantastic surrounding scenery. Plenty of benches for sitting and relaxing.

not much left of the plantings in September, a few perennials would help. Still an interesting relic which has been here forever.

I could have stayed here all day taking photos. Part of the gardens was under construction, but it appeared to be another pond, stream and pagoda that they were building. Nice spot for kids to run around and play.
