  • No entry fee, and wonderful views make for 5 stars. Well kept gardens in a quaint setting is well worth the stop. The historical building nearby looks great in photos and is picturesque!
  • Absolutely beautiful place! We had it secluded for our wedding ceremony because it was under construction but the workers were off by 4. Most memorable views in the world. Very impressed. Easy to find location. Perfect weather for the day.
  • Nice layout, but I went in early September and must have missed the flowers by 1-2 weeks. Still great scenery.
  • Currently undergoing renovation all the pools and cascades are empty. Most of the planting is temporary annuals. I understand renovation will continue for at least a year. So while the area is pleasant, as a garden attraction can't give it more than 2 stars at present.
  • Beautiful gardens. We really enjoyed taking them in. Great for a quick visit. A must see in Banff.
