If you are visiting Banff, the Centre is an interesting place to visit. Frequently there are shows and displays worth seeing. It is a relatively easy uphill walk from the Town.

The city of Banff is small, but has everything you could want or need on your trip. Excellent restaurants, a multitude of stores and bars, and a friendly atmosphere. Do not pass up Banff on your trip to the Alberta area.

There is a fitness centre and swimming pool at The Banff Centre. It is a very pleasant 15 - 20 minute walk into downtown.

If you are passing through the park you do not need a Park Pass. If you are passing through the park you may stop for gas etc. I have never seen a Park Pass Check within the town of Banff.
