We found this free gem located at the western end of Banff. The flowers were lovely and we so enjoyed walking the grounds. Kudos to the staff for keeping things so pretty. Wonder if I can get one of them to take care of my garden at home? :) Seriously, if you have an hour and want to see beautiful... More

This tiered garden ... located behind the government building across the bride in Banff is a nice surprise and well worth a stroll. Bring your camera ... you will be surprised at the size of the garden and the many species of plants. Great location to take wedding photos ...

It was the end of the day when I walked up the hill. The displays were wonderful even for Canada that really has a lot of nice flowers. The building was closed, but didn't matter with so much to enjoy outside.

Cascade Gardens is such a beautiful place in heart of Canada Place in Banff. Take a road around main building and find free parking. Not too many spots there. Very nice place to take pictures or even to do picnic:)

Just a short walk across the bridge from downtown you will find an oasis!! They are redoing one of the ponds so one of the areas is fenced off. This is our second trip to the gardens which began around 1933-35. It is beautiful now but will get better as the months go on. It is free and lots of... More

This is a great place to get away from it all and refresh yourself with some beauty. From the gardens you have a view of downtown Banff but feel as if you are a million miles away. It is well worth a visit to reflect in peace and quiet.

Hardly any shops and apart from Gap store and 1 decent cafe nothing there to recommend the visit,the most exciting there was the Spagetti factory,you can enjoy yourself riding up and down the escalator and that's it!

This is a pleasant respite from the shop-til-you-drop rush of downtown. It was very peaceful and has a nice view of Banff downtown and it will no doubt be even lovelier when they get the water in the cascades and flowers planted.

As it was the end of May there were not many flowers planted yet but the beds were all prepared for the plantings. The roses and some other shrubs were in bloom. The garden is located on a hillside over looking the town of Banff. With its walking paths it is very accessible to all. With the Bow River separating... More
