Reader’s Rock Garden

Just off McLeod Trail and 25th Avenue, Reader’s Rock Garden is an urban oasis. It might be the perfect lawn, the flowers, or that bench outside, but we can feel our heart rates lower while we’re here.

Where:  311 25 Avenue SE

Devonian Gardens

If we’re doing a classic Calgary weather switcheroo– sunny skies to hail bullets? Sounds about right– you might as well head inside to smell the blooms. Devonian Gardens got a sweet reno not too long ago too, go check ‘er out!

Where: CORE Shopping Centre– 333 7 Avenue SW

You can walk your dog here. Need we say more? Okay, fine. This place is full of ornamental and native plants that are super gorg and totally worth the walk.

Where:  37 Silver Springs Dr NW

Beaulieu Gardens

Lougheed House was originally built in 1891. It used to be known as “Beaulieu” (French for “beautiful place”), and we have to admit that the name still makes a lot of sense. From the gardens to the grand sandstone design, it gives off major high society vibes.

Where: 707 13 Ave SW

Calgary Horticultural Society
