  • Its been almost a year i've gone their several times. But its always been closed. They say their doing maintenance and repairs to it but it seems like their not doing anything because in year they could have built a whole new garden. Please do something because this is one of the attractions of the city and mall.
  • Place has been closed for over 8 months. Not sure what people have been reviewing for the last 8 months, but it sure isn't this place. As for what was left of the garden after the first big reno... not much WAY smaller, less than half the plants and a shadow of all of the former water features. But it is a great food court, but botanic garden... nope.
  • They destroyed the gardens. Use to be an awesome and free place to go. We use to have winter picnics there. Terrible replacement.... they destroyed it like they did with Bowness Park.
  • I'm not sure who's writing a lot of these recent reviews, but they seem to be for the "old" Devonian Gardens. Old Devonian Gardens was separated from the food court, humid and warm even in the winter, alive with exotic flora and turtles, a welcome respite from the bustling downtown core. I have many happy childhood memories there, exploring the many sidepaths. New Devonian Gardens is connected to the food court, is devoid of any character or charisma, and it sure as hell isn't warm. I hope the construction improves on it, but I doubt it.
  • A lovely indoor garden. Nothing particularly special. I wouldnt go out of my way to see it but if youre in td mall just give it a walk through
