Second visit here when visiting family as we are from the UK. This garden is a must if you are in Lethbridge. A place to relax and chill. Take a book sit in the sun and listen to...nothing. So peaceful and timeless.

Gorgeous location, very well-maintained with care. Staff was friendly throughout and one gave an incredibly detailed tour of the main buildings, with a ton of history and insight. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and worth a visit.

These gardens are beautiful but the best part is taking the tour aND under standing the significance of the monochromatic colour scheme, the types and placement of the trees as well as the history of this place. Loved it!

Beautiful place. I expected a little more for the price to get in but that’s okay. The gardens are beautiful and I liked looking at the items in the little building.
