Alberta Parks - Government of Alberta

Alberta's parks inspire people to discover, value, protect and enjoy the natural world and the benefits it provides for current and future generations. This vision was set by Alberta’s Plan for Parks.

In 1932, Alberta's first provincial parks were established under the Provincial Parks and Protected Areas Act. Since then, the provincial parks system has evolved from small local recreation sites to a comprehensive parks and protected areas system which conserves landscapes, offers opportunities to experience and learn about nature, and provides a wide range of recreation and tourism experiences.
