Devonian Gardens Review

Above Toronto Dominion Square and atop the Toronto Dominion Centre shopping complex, a 2½-acre enclosed roof garden holds 20,000 plants, nearly 2 km (1 mi) of lush walkways, a sculpture court, and a playground. Alberta's largest indoor gardens, which are reached by two glass-enclosed elevators just inside the 7th Avenue light-rail transit (LRT) entrance, have numerous ponds with rainbow trout, koi, goldfish, and turtles. Art exhibitions are held here, and there's a stage for performances. The gardens are currently closed for renovations and scheduled to reopen summer 2012.

    Do not bother...

    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.
