I have been to this park before, it is such a lovely place to sit and have a coffee and relax. The playground structure is very popular and my little one really enjoyed it, Everything was clean.

We were here for a memorial, and the setting was magnificent! A great place to take the family for an afternoon outing if you need something indoors.

Interesting display of greenery inside of a mall. Plants growing up the walls, was a good place to grab a bite to eat, food court right beside.

Stopped by for a few minutes after shopping at the core. Was pleasantly surprised to see how large it was. Very zen.

Like it very much a green herat in a green city. Lot of more space since the renovation, however it does not have the cozy feeling of the "old" Devonian Gardens. It is impressive and beautiful.

Unfortunately the Gardens is closed frequently do to renovations. It's constantly being redone. That's is the downside of the garden for sure

You have to go to the City of Calgary website for information about booking the Devonian Gardens. From my understanding, you can take your wedding photos there but you cannot hold the ceremony or reception in the gardens... More
