This year, Parks Canada is please to offer free admission for one day at Parks Canada places across the country.

Jasper National Park will host Free Admission Day on November 23, 2018. The free day will also be observed at Banff, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks. This day acknowledges the history of the Rocky Mountain national parks which began when the Cave and Basin National Historic Site was founded in what is now Banff National Park on November 25, 1885.  We invite you to plan a long weekend to celebrate the heritage of Canada’s most special places.

This is also the perfect time to experience the outdoors and learn more about this special place. All four parks are excited to offer a variety of winter experiences for visitors of all ages to enjoy. Visit any Parks Canada visitor centre or explore the web for ideas. Please note that only admission is free on free admission day. Fees for services such as camping and firewood, transportation and hot pools remain.
