Nice Garden Away from the noise of Banff

Lovely garden with nice walkways. Very nice unique wooden structures. Take some time and go have a stroll through the gardens.

Even though it was late in the season, we still enjoyed this garden. Some beds looked like they had been newly planted. The colors were wonderful and the landscaping is very pleasing. There are numerous spots for good portraits. We would always choose to visit this spot. Very tranquil.

These gardens are within the grounds of a government admin building that looks like a mini castle. There has been no water in the ponds for about 8-10 years we were told by one of the ground crew that it needs extensive and expensive repairs. Even without the water, it is a beautiful garden to walk through or sit and... More
