Banff National Park is Canada's first and most heavily visited National Park. The park is situated in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, 111 kilometers east of Calgary and adjacent to Jasper National Park in the north. The mix of towering mountains, glittering glaciers and icefields, lush alpine meadows, and natural mineral hot springs makes up one of Canada's most exciting recreational areas.
Banff National Park has been established in 1885.
In 1895 the Banff Park Museum opened its door and was moved to the present building in 1903. This marks the oldest building Parks Canada maintains. Almost 100 years later, in 1985 it was declared a National Historic Site.
Castleguard Cave extends for 23 km below the Columbia Icefields and is indeed the largest cave system in Canada.
Park in Focus
Yellowstone National Park
Overview: Established on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park is the first and oldest national park in the world.
Preserved within Yellowstone are Old Faithful Geyser and some 10,000 hot springs and geysers, the majority of the planet's total. These geothermal wonders are evidence of one of the world's largest active volcanoes; its last eruption created a crater or caldera that spans almost half of the park.
An outstanding mountain wildland with clean water and air, Yellowstone is home of the grizzly bear and wolf, and free-ranging herds of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, one of the largest intact temperate zone ecosystems remaining on the planet.
The human history of the park dates back 12,000 years. The events of the last 130 years of park history are reflected in the historic structures and sites associated with various periods of park administration and visitor facilities development.
