Southern Alberta Parks Flood Recovery

Southern Alberta is home to some of the world's most majestic provincial parks, attracting millions of visitors every year. When the Alberta floods hit in June, 2013, our parks were directly hit, leading to a quick response, heroic measures, and the safe evacuation of visitors and staff from all the affected areas. Once the floodwaters had receded, Parks staff had an unprecedented outpouring of support from the community, people looking for ways to help the parks recover, and volunteering hundreds of hours of work on the ground in cleanup and rebuilding. Work continues on further flood recovery, remediation, and mitigation in directly affected areas, including: Kananaskis Provincial Park, Fish Creek Provincial Park, Wyndham Carseland Provincial Park, and Oldman River Provincial Recreation Area.
