The gardens are the top floor of the Core Shopping Centre. Its well laid out with luscious plants, flowing water and lots of tables to sit at. A nice place to relax after shopping but could do with an additional food and drinks court.

It is a nice place with many foliage plants, flowers and a big water pond with fish and a fountain. I went there on a Saturday afternoon, and a gentleman played the grand piano there.

My teen and I happened upon this garden while exploring the downtown area. I knew nothing about it but was awed when I realized what it was. Here, on the top floor of the CORE shopping mall, is a complete, lush garden. I imagine its truly wonderful to visit this green-space in the dearth of Calgary's often very long winters.... More

Beautiful indoor garden inside a mall! We found it very peaceful and relaxing. This is a unique place and should not be missed.

Stroll through different gardens and along pools and ponds, all in the comfort of an enclosed space on the upper floor of CORE Center in downtown Calgary. There is a "park" for kids to play (slides, climbing, etc.) and benches where you can sit and rest. On the same level, just outside the gardens, are multiple fast food restaurants where... More

Lovely tropical gardens at the top of the Core shopping centre. I could imagine this would be a delightful place for office dwellers to escape to during lunch.

We stopped by this garden after our lunch on Stevens Avenue. It was good but not as great as I thought it would be. It probably would have been more enjoyable if a couple parents did not let their children run and bang on a piano. It got so annoying we had to leave. There are a nice variety of... More

This garden at the end of the Cove food court is a really relaxing area.A play area for the children coupled with gardens and running water make this a must do. While we were there a piano had been set up and it was wonderful to hear the music as it was played by an accomplished person.

Wandered in here by chance and was pointed in the direction of the fifth floor which I believed to be the malls eating area ( which it was ) . I then noticed at the other end of the floor indoor plants which were beautiful .. Lots of them .. Then a play area for kids and to finish indoor... More

Good spot to sit on top level of CORE shopping complex...I waited out the rain here the other day...restrooms nearby, public piano anyone can play, small play area for kids, lots of seating....not sure exactly why, but I was underwhelmed to be honest.....maybe after the renovations it will be better?
