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.

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.

This garden is still under construction. The part that is finished is very pretty. Be aware that there are a lot of stone steps, some a bit irregular, that do not have any kind of handrail.

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.
