The Devonian Gardens are a poor shadow of their former selves. What used to be special and exciting to visit is now too sterile and boring. In and out in 5 minutes. A huge disappointment Calgary!

A beautiful oasis in the centre of Calgary's downtown. A perfect escape from the cold winter days. The gardens are a great place to sit and relax and a quiet place to sit and have a bite eat.

This indoor garden can prove to be a stunning back ground for a wedding or anniversary get together. Summer or winter it is full with beautiful flowers and Christmas seasonal flowers line the walkways. While being tied in to the +15 walkways downtown Calgary, you can take a snack ,meal or a great book with you and quietly enjoy these... More

This is a garden indoors with many different plant species. It was renovated a few years ago and is still beautiful. People go there to appreciate, have lunch and even they celebrate weddings. Its a must to go in Calgary, even if you don't like nature, stop by to enjoy a few quite moments. It is nice when is snowing... More

Escaped a Calgary downpour by visiting these indoor gardens! Within a shopping mall, it's a nice area to wander and sit for a little while, and there's plenty of little tables and chairs dotted around, so you could bring a sandwich or something to eat. The pool with very large fish was great! Worth popping in to see.

This was a surprise to find in a downtown area the size of Calgary. Even though we didn't eat there, it was obvious that many people do. Lots of eateries are available. The greenery is less and obviously well cared for.

This is a very interesting garden (must be specially so in the winter) because it is inside a steel building but doesn't feel like it, it's very well taken care of. Kind of surreal! Stick for lunch or dinner since there is a food court and a mall in the same structure.
