  • Nice place to come and escape for a few hours while looking at the flora. There is also a nice restaurant there for lunch. Don't be too late though as the restaurant closes mid afternoon.  more »

  • 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
  • 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.
  • This is one of those lesser known, unique places in Calgary. Great food & service with a sense of local history
  • This is locared at the heart of the city, just few blocks away from downtown. The view of Calgary tower and downtown buildings is simply super. The garden is very peaceful, wide variety of plants, flowering and non flowering, well maintained and the gardening staff were very cool and polite. This place with all flowering plants and big trunk trees and wild birds, squirrel, it's colorful and amazing spot to visit and fantastic spot to nature photographers. I don't know how it would be on weekends though, if you visit on weekdays, it's very quite and no much people and its best time to visit is weekday. 😊
