Established on September 14th, 1907, the Jasper Forest Park, later known as Jasper National Park, is the largest of the Canadian Rockies parks. Jasper covers close to 11'000 square kilometres and protects the largest glacial-fed lake in the Canadian Rockies, Maligne Lake and the highest mountain in Alberta, Mount Columbia, which is 3'747 metres high.

The National Park is connected by the Icefields Parkway with the Banff Nationalpark in the south.
