Help us celebrate 25 years of slip sliding fun!
It has been a rite of passage for thousands of Albertans; scrambling up the stairs and taking the plunge from the top of the our two twisty water slides. Today, we celebrate 25 years of slip sliding play and recognition as an industry leader in family accommodation.
Our commitment to family friendly accommodation was acknowledged by Calgarys Child magazine with the Parents Choice Award. We have been catering to families since we began welcoming visitors to Banff in 1946 and we are continually adding to our list of family friendly amenities. In 1985, we opened up our now famous indoor water park. The very popular Playzone was opened in 2005 offering a variety of obstacles for children to enjoy including: Three speed slides, huge climbing tree trunk and two storeys of entertainment. In 2009 we added a games and video arcade room in the water park. Older kids particularly enjoy the most recent additions to this space – pool table, foosball and air hockey.
Now, the rooms at Douglas Fir Resort are even more family-friendly than ever. The latest completed upgrades include HDTV flat screen televisions, DVD players and Plug and Play panels in every living room making it easy for families to bring their favorite movies and connect their gaming consoles (wii, Xbox, Playstation) to the TV. Keeping families entertained is easy at Banff’s finest family accommodation.
Come visit us this summer and experience the fun with your family!
