A brand new hotel is mere months away from opening in Jasper, and it’s the first new spot to open its doors since the early 1980s.
Located on the edge of town, Forest Park Hotel by Pursuit is set to open this June. It will provide the ideal basecamp for visitors looking to immerse themselves in nature while staying close to the town’s vibrant downtown shopping and culinary offerings.
The spot may be familiar to you if you’ve spent some time in Jasper. It’s connected to the former Sawridge Inn & Conference Centre, with the two hotels becoming one, creating a year-round, resort-style getaway.
