Devonian Gardens Reviews & Ratings
You know I think that this is a very special place that everyone in Calgary should visit at some point. This is the first time I visited it with my family and we had a really nice walk there and I think it's more about how it makes you feel being around a bunch of living plants smelling the air talking to the children about the importance of what it means to have green healthy vegetation and the contributions to our Earth. On the other hand it's just a nice place to go up there and kind of just kind of meditate. I mean you're kind of looking outside in the big downtown core yet you're surrounded by all these plants. just a great place to I guess find your own feelings about whatever it is you're thinking about or whatever it is it comes about from being in that environment.
This is such a lovely place to visit while in the CORE shopping centre. A nice break from the busy downtown of Calgary. A little oasis to sit and have lunch or coffee and let your mind/body have a rest😊 Plus the climate is always lovely being indoors🌞
I love to visit this place, specially during winter time when there is snow everywhere outside. The garden is always well cared e the entire area is clean. There is a playground area for children and a good variety of restaurants. A public piano is available and there is always someone playing good songs. It is a relaxing area in downtown.
Absolutely gorgeous. The updates they have made throughout are amazing. The living plant walls are our favourite. They make such a nice back ground for pictures. Will definitely visit again.
This is obviously something to see, an indoor garden full of lush greenery when it is -23°C outside! What an excellent spot to unwind in Calgary. I often come here to work on my laptop to escape the fast pace of downtown business. Proximity to food, shopping and the +15 make this a great spot.
