A great place to stop and look for activities and maybe pick up a souvenir or two. Easy to find located in the main square the restrooms are actually across the street and there are several locations near the railroad tracks.

I'm booked into Jasper hotels 11-12 April. Do you know of any tour group that provides a tour Jasper -Banff during that period. Tried Sundog Tours but they are not operating during the shoulder season. Would like to see highlights around Jasper and through to Banff. I know the train and Greyhound are operating but would like something different. Bob Garner
