What can I say about the main park in the town other than the fact that everyone from Local to Tourist simple sit in the park on a nice sunny day when you really don't have anywhere else to go. Better choices include Johnstone Lakes, Two Jack lakes, Vermillions Lakes and even Cascade Ponds. Basic Town Park and nothing special.

Great spot to have a picnic, sit and relax and play games. There's parking available around and gives you a break from all the people shopping and such downtown Banff. There are also walking trails that go along the water that make for a really nice walk.

Love banff' Central Park . It's a great place to stop for a rest especially with dogs and children . The river goes by and it is very scenic. Not a lot of chairs so bring your own or a blanket. On Wednesday 's is banff market and its an easy stole to check out the goods.

We just went to Farmer's Market which is during summer every Wednesday in Central Park. Park is awesome lots of spots for relaxing. It's just by the river too and this year there are more parking spots available by the Bow River.

beside the Jasper National Park we also visited the Banff National Park for 3 days. Here Lake Louise is nice to see that it is june and it is still frozen. What is good in the park: quiet and the traffic is well organized. Next year we will come back
