Located in Banff, Alberta in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. Cascade Gardens is a little oasis just minutes walk from downtown Banff. It’s the perfect place to escape the crowds of Banff Avenue. The gardens are terraced into the hillside with pathways and rock steps that lead through trees and flower beds. Several gazebos and sitting shelters make a great refuge from the sun on a hot day. Peak blooming season runs from June to September, but you can enjoy a stroll through the grounds during other months when it is not snowbound. Admission to the gardens is free.
