Downtown’s Devonian Gardens have finally re-opened after nearly three years of renovations and the welcome respite from downtown's hustle and bustle was worth the wait.
The spectacular indoor garden space is home to an abundance of beautiful plants only found in Calgary due to the indoor nature of the garden. The perfect place for a lunch break or a cheap date, entry to the garden is free for all. Encouraged as a community spot to relax and enjoy all year round, the re-opening marks the full completion of The CORE shopping centre.
Rumour has it that a well-loved local restauranteur will be opening up a new dining spot in the gardens, raising the bar above the typical food court fare nearby. —Kait Kucy
