We were looking for some specific landmarks and left with the information we needed and some other 'gems' to hunt out. It made our trip even more special. The ladies in there know their stuff and a bit more. Thanks!

All throughout Alberta we were so delighted with the information and direction given by the workers at their centers. Jasper's center is in a charming building and has a wealth of info for visitors.

Seriously, is it just me, or do Canadian's use the word "perfect" just a little too often. Just the same, the lady at the information desk was perfect, she knew exactly what we would like, what was worth the trip, and what to skip (don't go to the tram if weather is poor).

The Jasper Information Centre is located right in the centre of Jasper town off the main strip. It's housed in a historic building that you cannot miss (the building alone is worth the visit just to see as that is the original building from Jasper's early days.

The staff were not overly helpful. Plus the person that served me had a heavy accent. I struggled to understand her. There are no washrooms anywhere near the centre. It would be first stop for a lots of people after arriving in Jasper and those facilities would be nice.

Must stop for all kinds of info - we stopped twice! We got some great hiking advice from the friendly gal including some watch outs due to closed areas. Be prepared to make the most of your time in Jasper and visit the info center upon arrival!

The day we were in town, there was an interpreter dressed as first resident & director of the park who was able to fill us in on history & stories of building. He was entertaining & helpful.

This is where you can get free trail maps. The staff person we worked with was okay but I did see others that were more helpful. If visiting Jasper, you should stop by there to see what there is to do there.
