  • A good place to walk around as jagged from downtown Banff. The historic mansion is the feeling of a walk in the garden. Explore the Bow River side walk lightly, it's a good idea also.

  • Beatiful place to admire nature at its best in a very touristic town. You can walk around beautiful flowers following the paved paths around the cascades. You can also admire the mountains while you are amazed by the beautiful colors that make you feel wonderful. I visited in August and they were renovating and there was a lot of work in progress. I have nevertheless enjoyed very much the time I spent in the park.
  • Could be better but great walk. The surroundings are breathtaking. The basic idea of this garden is great but the actual gardening skills are still to be improved. However is is a very nice attempt but definitely needs more improvement. Could be one of the great tematic gardens.
  • Beautiful place great architectural building .it's the park's and recreation building office .they said it's gardens are beautiful in the summer .we took pictures of the snow cover place it was still beautiful.
  • Beautiful gardens. Perfect for wedding photos. Some people tend to be respectful of the photos you take others not so much. Behind the wooden bridge section and onwards was under construction.
  • Cascade Gardens are family and pet friendly place to walk around if your in Banff area. From the top you have panoramic view on the Banff center.
