“Devonian Gardens”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I always recommend visitors to Calgary check it out, as it is very warm, lush and inviting. I did prefer the original gardens, as it was more of an escape, where now its just part of the food court. Venture far enough in, and its a good escape for a lunch break!

“Lovely”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

This was a little haven in the city center and to have it to visit on a wet miserable evening was just heaven. Plenty of places to sit around and enjoy the beautiful trees there. Really loved it.

“Great place to take the kids”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

All indoor on the third floor of the building. Koi ponds and lots of plants and trees. Play areas for the kids so good place to visit when the weather is wet or cold. Close to Stephen Ave. On the +15 walkway and C Train.

“a downtown oasis”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

My kids loved the play park although it gets rather crowded. They also loved the huge koi fish and had an opportunity to feed them. IT would be a great place to sit and read without kids.

“Beautiful place, miss the old gardens”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

The waterfall type features from the old gardens are gone but it is still a wonderful little oasis in the heart of downtown Calgary. Well worth a visit if you are already downtown. It could be combined with shopping on Stephen Avenue for a full day of activities.
