  • I went on a dates here twice. The one time I went it was summer. I paid and vowed to never go again because I think it is highly over priced when there are no special things going on there. Lo and behold this past winter we got free tickets so we went to see the lights. It was pretty and nice, but I would not have willingly paid the entry fee. In my opinion the entry fee is insane. You can easily see everything in 10 minutes if there aren't special events going on and there really isn't much in there to see that you can't see else where for free in Lethbridge (with the exception of the house and the bell) I will give them this.....it is a relaxing atmosphere during the summer.
  • I absolutely love the Japanese Gardens, and would definitely recommend going. It's extremely peaceful, and so beautiful. Plus, if you get a chance to see the drumming, that was incredible. Plus, everyone working there was so helpful and knowledgeable. I like to go every summer.
  • Went to view the lights. Beautiful! Small kiosk serving hot drinks, definitely good idea to get something warm to drink for the lovely walk around gardens. Also provided is a warming tent.
  • Really really awesome place, with great holiday events, and a nice gift shop. Not to mention how beautiful the garden itself is all year round. Definitely a place worth visiting.
  • Drove with Calgary friends to Waterton Park. On the way back, they insisted we visit this Japanese Garden as a side trip. Well worth it. It's part of a very complete municipal recreation complex that I'd never expect to see in a modest size city. Very impressive. I was visiting from California. The presentation is detail oriented, pleasant, and pretty. Highly recommended.
