Banff National Park is Canada‘s oldest national park, established in 1885 in the Rocky Mountains and is the third-oldest national park in the world. Today, Banff National Park is 6,641 square kilometers (2,564 square miles) in area, the second largest of Canada’s mountain parks behind Jasper National Park.

Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m).

In 1984, Banff was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is one of four national parks (Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay) that, together with three British Columbia provincial parks (Mount Assiniboine, Mount Robson and Hamber), make up the Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site.
