Staff were very helpful, they pointed out what to see on the mountain & the facilities. Departing from the centre of the building was quite convenient.

Definitely a good first stop in town. They helped mark maps with places to see wildlife and warnings about forest fire zones.

“Lots of great information”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Get all the information about the National Park here. The staff are very helpful. The staff can help you with hotels, restaurants, attractions and hikes. They also have public washrooms which can be hard to find in Banff sometimes.
