Cascade Gardens

1 Cave Ave
Banff AB

"Banff is to have a geological garden which will be the only one of its kind in the world. It will depict in rock, plants and models the evolution of life.and it will be named The Cascades of Time." These are the words that remained from Banff Crag & Canyon since 1934. The Cascade Gardens are the exact representation of those words: they are more than a simple garden, since they seem to take their visitors to a journey through history. Rock pools represent the stages of creation of the Rocky Mountains and they are connected by cascades of water - "The Cascades of Time" as they are often called. Each of the pools is made from rocks that are of the appropriate age for the period being displayed.
