Jasper Parks & Gardens
Jasper is the largest and most northerly of the four Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks which comprise the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its scenery is rugged, including deeply gouged Maligne Canyon and picturesque Maligne Lake. Thrill to the thunder of Sunwapta Falls; enjoy the serene beauty of glacier- covered Mount Edith Cavell; hike along any of the 1,000 km of trails; or have a relaxing soak in Miette Hot Springs.
Spirit Island is the small islet that often accompanies a photograph of popular Maligne Lake. Found on the southern end of the lake, this island is only accessible by private vessel or tour boat that allows passengers to walk the island. A viewpoint offers spectacular vistas of the mountain range that surrounds Maligne Lake.
Centennial Park Jasper
Centrally located and with mountain views, Centennial Park offers green space for a wide range of outdoor recreation activities. Amenities include three baseball diamonds, a soccer and rugby pitch, picnic areas and a log cabin complete with concession, kitchen facilities and public washrooms.
