    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

    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.

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.
