  BANFF HOTSPRINGS
  FACTS ABOUT OUR HOTSPRINGS

 
It happened in 1883. William McCardell and two other Canadian Pacific Railway workers happened upon the hotsprings. To settle land disputes and several claims of ownership that were erupting over the new-found liquid gold, the Canadian government expropriated the land and formed Canada's first National Park. The original reserve, formed in 1886, was only 10 square miles. The park has grown to become Canada's second largest National Park (Jasper is the largest) and one of the most famous in North America.

Visit the day spa, cafe, gift shop, outdoor terrace, wonder of water exhibit, award winning interpretive events and the historic swimsuits display.

Banff Hotsprings
-- Careful in the Rockies --
There is dangerous and unpredictable
wildlife at every turn. Just kidding, but you do not want to approach any wildlife, even the ones that look cute!


Banff Hotsprings
Legend has it that bears would soak in the hotsprings before hibernating. The Stoney Indians worshipped the waters long before white man stepped onto the North American Contintent.
