At the end of Banff avenue you enter a multi level flower garden with vast flower beds and cascading ponds. There are gazebos and benches throughout the slate rock walkways The gardens have no charge to visit

If you want to have some quiet time, visit the Cascade Gardens. Only a walk over the bridge from Banff Avenue, it is worth the visit if you like gardens. Nice and quiet. It isn't huge, but it is pretty.

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.
