Walked around this park, plenty of flowers still in bloom, nice winding pathways and various places to stand and sit taking in the views. Shame the water feature wasn't working.

We may attend the music festival June 19 and 20. We are not familiar with Banff and would like to know where you would recommend we could stay for a couple of days, close enough to walk to the festival. Is this possible?

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.
