The garden is a series of terraced gardens built into the hillside. It includes many colourful flower beds, rock gardens, trees, shrubs, winding pathways, stone steps, and water features.

The gardens are located behind the Parks Canada Administration building. This historic stone building was built in 1935.

The Brett Sanatorium and Hotel stood on this site from the 1880s until it burnt down in 1930. Parks Canada took over the 12 acre land and architect Walter Beckett designed the administration building and surrounding gardens.

The gardens are free to visit as is the Parks Canada building.
