Summer 2021: The playground and the climbing wall are closed at time of writing.
Devonian Gardens is a full hectare of green space located inside The CORE retail mall. Since 1977, Calgarians have flocked to this downtown oasis to take a break, have a bite to eat, and bask in the greenery.
The gardens, which were completely renovated in 2012, feature gorgeous skylights to let in a ton of natural light, unique plants, and a fun indoor playground. We went down to take a look at the gardens and the kids loved it! The ponds are stocked with koi fish which my kids could probably watch forever. I had to pry them away to walk around the rest of the facility.
The indoor playground is perfect for older kids (ages 5 and up) but younger kids might find the climbing structure a little too challenging to tackle.
