Alberta Parks

Banff National Park - The park is in the Rocky Mountain natural life zone, with terrain divided into three separate eco-regions: the montane, the sub-alpine and the alpine. Banff is the birthplace of Canada's national park system and a part of the Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage site.

Skoki Lodge in Banff National Park was Canada’s first commercial ski lodge, and the combination of its magnificent setting and 1930s retro charm have given the lodge a spot among the Top Ten Romantic Getaways in Canada's National Parks.

Waterton Lakes National Park - Rugged, windswept mountains rise abruptly out of gentle prairie grassland in spectacular Waterton Lakes National Park. Here, several different ecological regions meet and interact in a landscape shaped by wind, fire, flooding, and abundant plants and wildlife. The park helps protect the unique and unusually diverse physical, biological and cultural resources found in the Crown of the Continent: one of the narrowest places in the Rocky Mountains. The highlight of Waterton's sparkling chain of lakes is the international Upper Waterton Lake, the deepest lake in the Canadian Rockies. In 1932, the park was joined with Montana's Glacier National Park to form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park - a world first.

Jasper National Park - Jasper is the largest and most northerly Canadian rocky mountain national park, part of a spectacular World Heritage Site. Comprised of delicate and carefully protected ecosystems, Jasper's scenery is none-the-less rugged and mountainous. In this special corner of Canada you can thrill to the thunder of Sunwapta Falls, enjoy the serene beauty of Mount Edith Cavell, connect with nature along 1,000-plus kilometres of trails, experience Athabasca Glacier up close or just resign yourself to a relaxing soak in Miette Hotsprings.

Elk Island National Park - Located less than an hour away from Edmonton, Elk Island National Park of Canada protects the wilderness of the aspen parkland, one of the most endangered habitats in Canada. This beautiful oasis is home to herds of free roaming plains bison, wood bison, moose, deer, and elk. Also boasting over 250 species of birds, the park is a bird watcher's paradise. Be it for wildlife viewing, hiking, cross-country skiing, picnicking or overnight camping, there is something for everyone at Elk Island National Park.

Wood Buffalo National Park - As part of Canada's system of national parks and national historic sites, Wood Buffalo National Park of Canada is our country's largest national park and one of the largest in the world. It was established in 1922 to protect the last remaining herds of bison in northern Canada. Today, it protects an outstanding and representative example of Canada's Northern Boreal Plains.

Alberta - National Parks - Established as sanctuaries for wildlife, Alberta’s five national parks contain thousands of square kilometers of unspoiled wilderness.

Alberta's Provincial Parks - Alberta’s 75 provincial parks and hundreds of recreational areas protect 27,500 sq km (10,617 sq mi) and showcase the diversity of our geography – boreal forests, mountains, foothills, prairies, lakelands and badlands. There's even a provincial park in the middle of a major urban centre. As a matter of fact, there is a provincial park or recreation area within an hour’s drive of every community in Alberta, and day use is free.

Alberta's Municipal Parks - Visitors to Alberta are often pleasantly surprised at the sheer number of parks, gardens and outdoor recreation spots in our urban centres. Edmonton has more green space than any city in North America. Calgary has the most extensive continuous pathway system.
