“Small pretty garden”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

It was a beautiful garden, but very small. More flowers would be nice. They could easily have more flowers and plants. Nothing compared to the nice big gardens in Copenhagen.

“Beautiful Garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is easy to walk to and a don't miss garden, if you like flowers, rocks, ponds, streams and interesting wood. It is very well maintained and is filled with blooms of all kinds.

“Heard a lot but nothing much”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

We had heard a lot and were super excited to see the garden, but were dissappointed. There is nothing much for this month and most likely nothing would be for June. You may see some flowers in July.

“Fantastic gardens, lots of variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is a great place to visit and its free. It is located behind the Banff Park Headquarters, the big castle looking building at the top of Banff Avenue. There is a flow garden here that was planted long ago. There used to be ponds too, but they have fallen into disrepair and no longer used (too bad). You can easily spend an hour here walking through the gardens.

“Quite pleasant and relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I was in Banff in September and I decided to drop by Cascade Gardens for a few minutes. I was pleasantly surprised and I stayed almost 2 hours relaxing and taking in the sights. There is so much to see in the Canadian Rockies but sometimes we get too busy to just "take it all in"...Cascade Gardens is the perfect place to process all the beauty of Canada.
