I didn't even know this place existed. I came across it by accident a few years ago, It's very lovely, and a quiet peaceful place to go just to unwind. The colors and aromas are amazing. You won't be disappointed. You should take an hour...More

The location is unique but the parking is not that convenient. All in all the Devonian Gardens is a nice reprieve from a busy city day. A wonderful array of flowers and trees all indoor of course. Benches are spread through out for public use....More

Went in to try to visit Devonian Garden July 28 2017. The garden is close only the climbing playplace for children 5-10 years old playground is open. Garden area is close. Admin does not have an opening date. Don't bother you will not get in.

This garden is such a surprise in the middle of downtown Calgary. Its well taken care of, and it really shows some great talent with gardening. Well done

I have been going to the gardens since it was built in the late '70s. It use to be a nice place to escape the city and lose yourself in the trees, walkways, and pools. It was a wonderful place to read or eat lunch....More

I think some people are posting bogus reviews. When my husband and I tried to visit, the door was locked and a note posted about the closure of the gardens. We found a number to call and were told there was no date to reopen... More
