  • Cascade Gardens if a must-see in Banff if you are a lover of flowers & gardens. We were there in late July, and the flowers were so beautiful that I could not stop taking photos! It is quite small and...  more »
  • Walked around this park, plenty of flowers still in bloom, nice winding pathways and various places to stand and sit taking in the views. Shame the water feature wasn't working. 
  • The Gardens and the adminstration building was closed for renovation. All gates were closed except one for worker but no sign indicates the garden was closed until I run into a worker who told me that...  more »

  • 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.
