“Best Kept "Secret" Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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 ...

“Stunning flowers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

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.

“Hot day at the Cascade Gardens ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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:)

“A must to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

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 flowers to see! There is a large green area to let the kids run and play on too!! I read that only 1% of the visitors to Banff view the Cascade Garden. It is worth the visit and so relaxing!!
