You are invited to enjoy Devonian Gardens

We invite Calgarians to come out and enjoy the complete transformation of the Gardens. Following the grand opening, we wish to give everyone a chance to visit the newly renovated park over the summer months. We know people have been patiently waiting for the park to reopen and we’re excited about the new programs and education initiatives for Devonian Garden visitors.

 

Beginning in the fall of 2012, once everyone has had a chance to visit the newly renovated Gardens, we will once again offer exclusive bookings for large and small events, weddings, corporate functions and intimate gatherings. We know you are looking forward to booking this popular venue. In the meantime, please take this time to visit Devonian Gardens. We know you will love all the Gardens offer.

 

Please check this website for updates on booking availability this fall.

About the park

When 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.

 

The owner of the TD Square Retail space and the landlord of Devonian Gardens has changed hands. The new owners, 20 Vic Management Inc. have completed a multi-block renovation to Calgary's downtown retail mall. Part of this project includes a new skylight, changes in access/egress and a floor opening in the Devonian Gardens.
