“Nice garden”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

It's a small, quaint garden. It's a great getaway from the tourist hub of Banff city centre which can get pretty crowded. The stone pergolas are attractive and you get a nice view of the mountains and Banff downtown. When we were there the flowers were in the decline part of their life cycle which was disappointing but over all it is an enjoyable garden

“beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

a little quiet sanctuary in the middle of a beautiful city. It so beautifully done that you can literally just bring a book and spend the day there. Its so peaceful and serene. And surprisingly not o busy. It seems its still a little gem that not that many people know about. Which was surprising as its not exactly hidden. wonderful little place.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

We were married here and visit every time we are back in Banff. The flowers and bridges are beautiful, the trees old and stately and the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains and stone Administration building make for one of the most beautiful gardens in Alberta. A quick walk from downtown or a nice place to stop on your drive to the hotsprings (plenty of parking). Peaceful and wonderful for floral photography.

“Lovely Tiered Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

While the gardens are not massive, they are very well tended. The colors in each garden is lovely. They gardens are a mix of annuals and perennials. Interestingly, the bridges and gazebo is made of burled spruce, which is often the result of a fungi in the trunk. They are amazing to see. The tiers are designed with reasonably height steps of natural stone. While it's not a many hour visit, it's well worth the visit.
