Visited the gardens while on a three day stop in Banff. The gardens are well kept and lovely views of the mountains and gardens together

When wanting to have a lazy day or a nice simple stroll than these Gardens are prefect for this. I found out today that they have construction on the ponds on-going so it takes away the main entrance point of the gardens away. Take bug spray as the bugs are really bad but overall it is an enjoyable stroll through... More

The whole family appreciated the beauty. It is free. It was busy but not crowded. We're glad we read the reviews, or we never would've considered it. If you have 30-60 minutes, walk across the Banff Ave bridge from downtown Banff and wander the property. Lots of good photo opportunities.

very good place, not too many people there. The flower is so pretty. and just in the banff town, so, go to this Gardens for sure 非常美的花园。 本来在卡可家里附近不可能跟维多利亚岛的布查花园相似的花园。 没想到这个花园虽然规模小, 但是非常嘌呤很安静。 可以鸟瞰板芙镇。 就在公园管理楼的后面。 非常方便停车。一定是点赞的。

We spent a while walking through the gardens and sitting on a bench. You couldn't even hear the traffic so it was nice and peaceful. I'm sure it will be even more beautiful once the construction in one area is finished.

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:)
