Canadian Culture Culture, Heritage & Arts

What is quintessentially Canadian? If America has apple pie and baseball, Canada has butter tarts and hockey. And the Mounties and maple syrup and really long winters. Canada is the second largest country in the world. Here, it’s all about the great outdoors, where you’ll find Canadians in all four seasons. Like the rest of the country, Alberta has plenty of wide open spaces, from the Canadian Rocky Mountains – where we celebrate winter with a seven-month ski season – to boreal forests, rolling prairies and the mysterious Canadian Badlands. More lakes than any other province for fishing and boating and paddling. Countless parks for camping, hiking, riding and climbing. Come visit, we’d love to show you around.

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 meters 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.
