This is not a spectacular setting, but it is well done and maintained. The plentiful benches allow you relax mentally and physically. They just need to get some signs up, because of the construction, or you will wind up walking across the bridge like we...More

Possibly we visited just a bit early in the floral growing season as only some flowers were in bloom. Quite an attractive, simple paved walkway to navigate the various features. Odd that did not see a notice about the origins of the main building.

A lot of work seems to have been done since our last visit. The gardens are a now a beautiful haven away from the crowds on Banff Avenue. The gardens are beautifully laid out with gazebos, waterfalls etc, and masses of colourful flowers.

I visited the gardens at lunchtime on a sunny day and they were gorgeous. They aren't very big so they may struggle to cope with crowds, however they are kept in perfect conditions, lawns and flowerbeds beautifully maintained, plenty of benches to sit on, shade...More

The garden is laid out in a charmingly off-center Victorian style. Rocks, waterfalls and gazebos made from gnarly tree trunks. But only a few of the beds are planted and maintained. Lots of untended grass, weeds and dirt. It looks like they are working on...More

Only a short walk from the town centre so there's no reason not to visit here even if it's to take one photo of the gardens, with Banff and the mountains in the backdrop. The gardens themselves are well worked into the landscape and beautiful...More

Absolutely beautiful gardens with amazing view of the mountains; these gardens were full of color and greenery with little resting areas to take a minute and admire the lawns; flowers; butterflies; water features whilst taking in the surrounding views. Very tranquil and just a short...More

small garden in downtown under construction. It would have been pleasant to stroll, the garden in between all the majestic lakes and mountain sight seeing, if there was not construction going on.

On a rainy day, we we did an all-day walk of the townsite, and we saw approximately half of the buildings listed in the Walking Through Banff’s History leaflet (self-guided tour). Part of our walking tour was through Cascade Gardens.

Such well kept gardens and with stunning backdrops of the Rockies. It's free to enter and to roam around the gardens at your leisure. Well worth a visit.

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.
