  • Beautiful gardens that provide a unique contemplation experience in every season of the year. A great spot to relax after walking by Banff's main street. Historic landmark of one of the first National Parks Headquarters. Free entrance.

  • This beautiful 12-acre garden was re-built in 1935 by the Ontario architect Walter Beckett. It is feasting my senses with beauty of blooming flowers with the background of rocky mountains. During summer, it has live music performance. Live music ticket can be purchased online at Banff Centre website. The admission into Cascade gardens is free of charge unless there is special event.

  • The gardens are very picturesque and one of the few free things to do in town. There are several instagram worthy spots in the gardens. Plan on spending around 30 min to walk around and take it all in. Enjoy the nature, the mountains in the background and walk the trails before heading to the city to enjoy a nice beverage. We were there in July 2018 and it did not feel overcrowded.

  • Beautiful gardens to visit at Banff. Its free to entry. Great place to take pictures. It's a 60 minutes activity. They also have parking lots. If you love flowers or are a professional photographer it's the right place!

  • This is a pleasant little garden, but the upper levels in particular needed some attention; the upper levels were overgrown with weeds and flowers that were far past their prime. The lower levels had some nice color and the water feature was nice. And the price is right: free. Parking spots were scarce.
