Jasper National Park is a place for visitors to escape the hustle and bustle of urban life and reconnect with nature.
Dark Sky Preserve
Jasper National Park was designated a Dark Sky Preserve in 2011. The park is committed to protecting and preserving the night sky and reducing or eliminating light pollution to have minimal impact on an unimpeded night sky.
The park hosts special programs throughout the fall and winter to celebrate and promote awareness of our Dark Skies including the annual Jasper Dark Sky Festival held every October.
Jasper Red Chair Program
Six pairs of red Adirondack chairs have been placed around the park in different awe-inspiring locations that tell great stories. Some are easy to find, while locating others will be an adventure.
