Cascade Gardens reviews
This is a really nice place to sit and have a bit of a rest, relax on the beautifully manicured lawns as you view all the natural beauty of the the gardens and the mountains around you. more »
It was winter when we were here and several festive lights were installed. It was a nice walk around the Admin building. The view looking back into the main part of Banff is what I was here for. more »
Take 30 minutes to explore this garden. It is a beautiful property just a few steps from downtown and is very quaint. Free parking and dogs on a leash are allowed. more »
Would like to see a change in dogs procedure on your property it is so beautiful and welcoming ...But....... I don't want to leave my dog at home or in the car he needs exercise as much as you I....I promise to clean up after a accident and as always on a leash ...thank you for thinking of this idea a little more...
Great place to visit during Spring/Summer. Beautiful garden with the background of rocky mountains, lots of flowers! The perfect place to take nice family pictures and enjoy the view. A must-see in Banff for sure. Will come back when the Winter is gone ;)
The gardens themselves are very picturesque but perhaps a greater attraction is the signature photo opportunity looking down the main street.
This beautiful 12-acre garden was re-built in 1935 by the Ontario architect Walter Beckett. It is feasting my senses with beauty of blooming flowers with the background of rocky mountains. During summer, it has live music performance. Live music ticket can be purchased online at Banff Centre website. The admission into Cascade gardens is free of charge unless there is special event.
Beautiful gardens that provide a unique contemplation experience in every season of the year. A great spot to relax after walking by Banff's main street. Historic landmark of one of the first National Parks Headquarters. Free entrance.
