No charge to walk through these lovely cascading gardens. They were expanding when we visited which did not detract from the floral beauty. They let us walk our leashed dog in the gardens also. Very nice. Leisurely. A must for any garden or flower lover.

A lovely place for a walk. It's going to be absolutely gorgeous once the construction is finished. I find it a bit surprising that they would do construction this year, knowing that Canada 150 would bring more tourists. Would have made most seme to finish...More

We were disappointed that so little of the gardens were open as it is under development. The website certainly showed more than was open to walk around. Having said that, it is very pretty and well looked after with great views over Banff and the...More

The gardens were undergoing lots of work during our visit. The flowers were very nice and the gardens will be very special in the future.

We stayed in Canmore about 10 minutes away,but there are a lot of places on vrbo in Banff. Iwould ask them how far they are from the festival..You can walk and get around Banff on the sidewalks easily.
