Palisades Centre

Jasper National Park

The Palisades Centre is based out of the historic Palisades Ranch, located 12 km east of the Municipality of Jasper. Open year-round, we offer in-person and virtual stewardship education programs to schools and youth groups. We rent accommodation through the Parks Canada Reservation Service, and host groups for a variety of small events such as family reunions, retreats and workshops. You’re only a short drive to trails and town.

Consuming cannabis or cannabis products within the grounds of the Palisades Stewardship Education Centre is not allowed. Learn more about cannabis in Jasper.
