This indoor botanical garden, located on the top floor of the CORE shopping centre downtown, is a popular spot for weddings, the weekday lunch crowd, children, break dancers and musicians. Perfect for people watching or meeting friends, it's open all year round with plenty of tables, greenery, fountains, and a play area. If you're lucky, sometimes you can catch a free performance by someone playing on the public piano.

Inside the CORE shopping centre, the gardens provide a nice place to have lunch or just relax. There's also a playground with a climbing wall for kids.

Need a slice of paradise in the centre of the city - indoors no less? This indoor botanical garden is a great place to relax - especially in winter when it feels particularly otherworldly.

In 1977 the City of Calgary opened the Devonian Gardens which was Alberta's largest indoor park. The park included artwork, water features, fish and a variety of tropical flowers.
In 2012 the City of Calgary re-opened the Devonian Gardens and if you are looking for artwork, water features, fish and a variety of tropical flowers then you should not bother coming here.
Sadly what was a jewel in the city has been transformed into a sterile, corporate food court for the mall and no longer contains any of the features that made it special.

The Devonian Gardens recently were renovated to make the gardens in the middle of the downtown commercial mall an unexpected spot of greenery. There's even a children's playground. When you have had too much shopping, this is a good place for a break.
