“Hot day at the Cascade Gardens ”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Cascade Gardens is such a beautiful place in heart of Canada Place in Banff. Take a road around main building and find free parking. Not too many spots there. Very nice place to take pictures or even to do picnic:)

“A must to see”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Just a short walk across the bridge from downtown you will find an oasis!! They are redoing one of the ponds so one of the areas is fenced off. This is our second trip to the gardens which began around 1933-35. It is beautiful now but will get better as the months go on. It is free and lots of flowers to see! There is a large green area to let the kids run and play on too!! I read that only 1% of the visitors to Banff view the Cascade Garden. It is worth the visit and so relaxing!!

“Beauty Spot”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This is a great place to get away from it all and refresh yourself with some beauty. From the gardens you have a view of downtown Banff but feel as if you are a million miles away. It is well worth a visit to reflect in peace and quiet.

“Will be gorgeous in the summer.”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This is a pleasant respite from the shop-til-you-drop rush of downtown. It was very peaceful and has a nice view of Banff downtown and it will no doubt be even lovelier when they get the water in the cascades and flowers planted.
