On a farm southwest of Edmonton in 1947, a huge oil discovery at Leduc #1 made news around the world. It was the beginning of Western Canada’s modern oil industry. What does it take to be a “roughneck” (drilling rig worker) and go in search of oil? How do you discover, drill and pump oil from the ground? This national historic site reveals all. Outside the Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre, you can examine drilling rigs and vehicles used in oil exploration. A café, gift shop, camping and caravan Park are all available on site.
The Cave and Basin National Historic Site commemorates the birthplace of Canada's National Parks, which all began here in 1885 after the discovery of the hot springs. Visit the Cave to see where it all began, or take a Discovery Tour and learn more about the history and culture about this special place.
