Dinosaur Provincial Park Provincial Parks

Alberta’s got lovely weather, but 75 million years ago, the Badlands were a subtropical paradise. We’re talking palm trees, enormous ferns and humidity. The only things stopping it from being a prime spot for sipping cocktails out of coconuts were the lack of homo sapiens and all the enormous reptiles. Today, the provincial park is ripe for active exploration. ● Did you know: More than 150 full dinosaur skeletons have been unearthed in Dinosaur Provincial Park. More than 50 species have been discovered. No wonder it’s been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. ● Dig it: You can literally search for, and often find, real dinosaur bones here. You need this in your life, like, now.

Brooks Aqueduct National and Provincial Historic Site

Brooks, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Brooks Aqueduct was built over 90 years ago by the Canadian Pacific Railway's irrigation division to serve as a vital link in its expansive irrigation network. The Aqueduct stretched the limits of engineering design and technology, and at the time, it was the largest concrete structure of its kind in the world. Like a giant centipede, it spans a shallow 3.2 km wide valley, suspending a concrete sling 20 metres above the prairie landscape. Once filled with precious water bound for the thirsty croplands of southwestern Alberta, today this national and provincial historic site holds only memories.
