A great spot!
Sep 2020
We visited Cascade Ponds on a weekday and it was calm and very few people there.
The ponds are clear and blue and the spot offers amazing views of the mountains.
A very calm spot to bring a picnic and relax.

Pleasantly Surprised

I don’t how many times I’ve driven by Cascade Ponds? Not once have I ever stopped to check it out. This time we wanted to end our trip to the mountains with a short family friendly bike ride. We were going to ride from cascade pond to Johnson lake. We couldn’t find the trail head but made the most of our time at Cascade Pond. I want to stop there every time we visit Banff!

stunning
Jul 2020
the ponds at the base of Cascade Mountain, just off the TransCanada Highway and on the way to Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake are stunning at any time but are particularly so when they are full of water like the last time we saw them. Great picnicking area all around, with BBQ pits, big open spaces for the kids to play and little walking trails and bridges for exploring. Lots of birds and deer all around.
We biked there from Canmore on the Legacy Trail and then had lunch on one of the picnic tables there. Wonderful!!

Perfect Picnic Spot
Jul 2020
We rode bikes from here to Bankhead. The trail was easy (flat) with gorgeous mountain views. When we got back to Cascade Ponds we had a wiener roast and made s'mores. It was a hot day and so nice to dip our feet in the pond.

Beautiful family area! A hidden gem! I wish I knew of this place when my kids were little. Take a picnic, bathing suits, etc and make a day of it. So close to Banff in case you forgot something. Lovely place to swim and relax!

Great picnic spot in the middle of beautiful mountains and lake
Jun 2020 • Family
While the flush toilets were out of order during our visit in June 2020, this is a perfect picnic spot in the mountains. Beautiful lake, right at the start of lake Minnewanka loop. Once covid 19 restrictions are lifted, this place comes with kitchen shelter, flush toilets, picnic tables and a fire pit with each table.

Lovely Area with Ponds and Mountain Views
Sep 2019
Just a lovely peaceful area with ponds, bridges and mountain views. Great spot for a picnic or to relax for a bit. A scenic spot not too far from town.

If you visit Lake Minnewanka, the cascade ponds are on the way. Beautiful views and the area is set-up for picnics.

A beautiful drive!
Sep 2019
The area around Lake Minnewanka was just breathtaking. The many lakes in the area are crystal clear and have beautiful mountain reflections!

Good Picnic Area
Sep 2019
Cascade Ponds is just off Banff Ave beyond the TransCanada Highway. It has multiple picnic sites around a couple of ponds that have two arched bridges/walkways. Short trails travel up each side of the area. Elk were seen in the grassy field across from the entrance.
