The largest community within Banff  National Park

is the  Town of Banff.

We are a unique destination, and we take pride in accommodating visitors and providing tourism services, without losing the charm of a small mountain community. The Town of Banff is in the province of Alberta in the south western corner of Banff National Park, and west of Calgary. The town site is about 90 minutes from Calgary via the Trans Canada Highway, and less than two hours from Calgary International Airport.  
The Hamlet of Lake Louise is 50 minutes further west, also within Banff National Park.           Source:
