Nice gardens and well worth a walk around here. It is free to visit and you can get some good photos of Banff from the front of the Gardens.

Free parking (early bird gets the worm here) and no admission fee to walk these beautiful gardens. Cascading stream runs through the property and from the front of the building a stunning view of main street Banff. Peaceful and well worth the time!

These gardens are blooming in flowers in July and looked so pretty. A wander around the beautiful gardens and waterfalls is definately worth doing.

The gardens themselves are just gorgeous plus they are the perfect place from which to take that iconic Banff Ave photo!

Due to heavy rain, we could only drive by the front of the gardens, but what we say was very beautiful and still worth it to go by in the rain.

We stayed in Canmore about 10 minutes away,but there are a lot of places on vrbo in Banff. Iwould ask them how far they are from the festival..You can walk and get around Banff on the sidewalks easily.
