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 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.

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
