This place is a must see. Thay have a great interpretive area , great displays some are hands on for the kids. Find out things about Alberta you may not have known. Plus they give great interpretive trail walks with even more information. Wonderful way to spend the day with the whole family.

Walked the paths for the annual Hospice Walk. Great family day. Also a nice lunch time walk when working in the downtown area.

Looking for a place to get away without leaving the city. This is a great place to visit. During the winter time, great place to cross country skiing, or snowshoeing. During the summer, there are places to take in a picnic or enjoy a pond.

A great place for families to explore nature in a treed, grassy, Lake and hilly environment 😀👍 Here you can view various birds,moose, beavers,muskrats. They have a great natural playground and a musical area where kids can play drums and xylophone too.

The 5km trail I chose had terrific look outs and well groomed diverse trails. Very pleasant way... More
