A rich history of the park dates back thousands of years before a 26 square kilometre national reserve was created around hot sulphur springs discovered near Banff. Today, the area has grown to 6641 square kilometres known worldwide as Banff National Park. Part of a complex chain of national and provincial parks and wilderness areas which together total 5 million acres set aside for posterity, it is one of the world®s largest protected domains. Vast glaciers rimmed with ice, huge forests, and emerald green lakes exhibit some of the most majestic mountain scenery on earth. Bears, wolves and a host of other magnificent animals and birds extend their range throughout the hinterland. Not surprisingly, about 4 million visitors a year explore these parks.

Please tell us more about this amended license you mention - and in a separate post so that it won't get lost in the shuffle!

I was there in my preteen years...loved it!


we were in a tent and had bears, deer, skunk...all sorts of animals in their campground.


I remember going to the top of a mountain in a gondola...loved it.


The town was so neat.

Happy Easter! (big)
