Parks Canada is asking all travelers, including cyclists, to refrain from traveling on the Bow Valley Parkway between Johnston Canyon and the parkway's east entrance off the Trans Canada Highway between 6pm and 9am. As the Bow Valley Parkway traverses some of the best wildlife habitat in Banff National Park, this voluntary closure works to create traffic-free periods for sensitive wildlife at this time of year.
Banff National Park is the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains World Heritage Site, a global treasure of natural beauty, wildness, and diversity of life.
Enjoy. Connect. Respect.
