  • Sadly this attraction was not open in August when we went to visit it but if you peered over the walls that had been set up to keep people out, it looked like it would have been a nice place to visit....  more »

  • The up stairs portion is nice. Been Going here for quit sometime now, and i have to admit i like the new Devonian gardens and where its going. Personally the old one was quite dirty and was always closed for maintenance. This is a great place to relax if your on your lunch / coffee break. I find its a nice place to relax when I'm waiting for rush hour to subside on the ctrain.
  • The updates are pretty nice. People always say they miss the old Devonian Gardens, but I think they also don't remember how dirty it was. It seems to be continually closed, though, so there isn't much to see at the moment. One time someone was playing a piano rendition of 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now' on the public piano so I'm giving them 5 stars.
  • Its nice to see if you are around the area but would not recommend going out of your way to see it.
  • Still.nice for pictures . The reason my score is so low is that it was better before the Renos. Now it just feels like a big food court .
  • This is an amazing place to go to, I've been here various times and I enjoy taking photographs here!

Where to stay in Calgary

South of the river is where most of the action happens in Calgary, and that's where you'll find the best selection of places to stay. Downtown, the central neighborhood located on the river's southern bank offers the widest range of choices, with access to several of the city's major metro stations a big plus. For arts, nightlife, and quality of living, go to The Beltine, known for its cafes, restaurants, arts, and entertainment. If you're just visiting the city briefly but want access to onward transport links, choose accommodations located close to the city's international airport.
