Almost 500 sites in our provincial parks system protect sensitive habitats and the bounty of wildlife that lives in this part of Canada – while providing that back-to-nature experience so many of us crave. Come share our deep connection with the land. Ride a mountain bike or a raft through the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies, visit a UNESCO World Heritage site that’s home to the world’s richest deposits of prehistoric fossils and dinosaur finds, windsurf on a lake so big it feels like an ocean – it’s all yours to discover. The best part? Most of our provincial parks and recreation areas are close at hand and make great day trips.
