120 Years of Banff National Park

Today is the 120th Anniversary of the Rocky Mountains Park Act. The act passed by the Canadian Parliament created the first national park in Canada. The act was modelled after the 1881 American act which formulated the idea of a national park with the establishment of Yellowstone National Park.

Rocky Mountains National Park was later renamed to Banff National Park.
