Banff is a town known for its stunning views and natural beauty, so it should come as no surprise that tucked behind their stone Administration Building, you’ll find the Cascade of Time Garden – a 4-acre park with thousands of flowers.

Built in 1935, this impressive oasis is well known to locals but occasionally overlooked by tourists.
