Beautiful gardens! Very peaceful and serene. The brochure is very nicely done that explains everything along the path. This is a must see.

Nice views but not really worth the amount you pay if you don’t take the tour. Take the tour. Wouldn’t go back but it was a nice outting. It’s small and not tons to see. Expected more.

The garden was lovely & the tea house is not to be missed. The staff member in the tea house, Rachel was very knowledgeable and didn't mind answering my grandsons endless questions

There was nothing special to see by paying CAD13. It was a normal landscape green area available in many places within Alberta.
Actually it was waste of money.
Should be free for entry.

We're truly sorry to hear you didn't see value in our admission, Ashok. We have those admission fees to maintain the Garden, programming, and staffing costs. We're a non profit and we're sorry to hear it wasn't up to par.

I booked the picnic experience @ $35/person which includes entrance to the garden, lunch meal and drink and entrance to theFort whoopup. I am so glad I did. The garden is small and easily accessible and took us about 2hours to go around, eat and take photos. Everything was well maintained and manicures to perfection. Our table set-up was wonderful, food tasted good and it was very serene. I can stay here for a day with a book. It was really a fun experience.

Enjoyed a walk through the Gardens with spectacular lights on a winter evening. Inexpensive activity for all with lots of photo-ops.

Small, yet charming and beautifully maintained Japanese garden. I also liked the souvenir shop and the newly built visitor center just outside the gardens, worth a stop before or after strolling around the gardens

We were gifted a gin tasting evening and were pleasantly surprised at how educational it was. Also we weren’t expecting such a nice little charcuterie plate to go along with it! The garden is peaceful and pretty but you can walk through it in half an hour. Nice to visit.
