Stanley Thompson, Canada’s master golf course architect, designed this 18-hole course with elevated tee boxes, wide fairways that carve through thick forest, dramatic bunkering and holes aligned with distant mountain vistas. It has received 4.5 stars from Golf Digest, the Gold Tee award from Meetings and Incentive Magazine for seven consecutive years, and the Successful Meetings Magazine Pinnacle Award six years running. In addition to being recognized annually among the best public courses in Canada, SCOREGolf Magazine rated it as the Number One Public course in Canada for 2013.
The Jasper Park Information Centre, built in 1913-14, is one of the earliest and finest examples of rustic design in the national parks. Designed by Edmonton architect A. M. Calderon, the Jasper Park Information Centre was intended to serve as a landmark and focal point for the town. Built in the rustic design tradition utilising locally quarried stone and timber, the building set a design example for subsequent construction within the town. This vision of a unified architectural theme within the park was novel when first expressed by S. Maynard Rogers, Jasper’s first park superintendent.
