  • The gardens are both historic and peaceful. It is a great place for contemplation and reflection amidst babbling brooks beautiful trees well manicured lawns and well planned flower gardens. There is a restaurant also a historic design that is quaint and relaxing boasting a unique menu for brunch/ lunch dining.
  • Definitely a hidden gem in the middle of the city. Well laid out and a huge project that must have taken an enormous amount of work
  • One of Calgarys best kept secrets! Shhhhh...
  • Beautiful stroll in the gardens and a cute cafe with some delicious treats
  • Not an easy location to get to, especially for elder people, like my mom and dad who are in their 80's. Food was ok, Luke warm in temperature at best.
