Devonian Gardens: Grand Reopening June 27th 2012


What the gardens use to look like.



Devonian Gardens opened in 1977, it was a state-of-the-art facility that attracted international attention. Thirty-four years later, much of the infrastructure had exceeded its 30-year lifecycle, and The City of Calgary Parks is rejuvenating this key downtown attraction. 


Devonian Gardens will be reopening to the public on Wednesday, June 27, 2012. After a four year closure and complete renovation, the new Gardens will once again be a favourite destination for lunch crowds, tourists, families, and corporate and private events.
