Kananaskis Country 2013 Flood
One of Alberta Parks’ crown jewels, the majestic Kananaskis Country, is open for business and rebuilding from the unprecedented flooding of summer 2013.
Work to restore trails, campgrounds, and day-use areas began immediately after the flood waters subsided last June and will ramp up again this spring. With $81 million committed to provincial parks flood recovery over the next three years, the provincial government has directed approximately $76 million to the Kananaskis region, which includes Kananaskis Country as well as Fish Creek and Glenbow Ranch provincial parks. This funding reflects the government’s commitment to ensuring Alberta’s parks system remains among the best in the world while providing Albertans with opportunities to connect with nature, be active, have fun, and relax.
As noted so often by Dr. Richard Starke, Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation, has often noted that investment in the Alberta Parks system is an investment in Albertans’ quality of life, in preserving our natural history, and in our economy. The provincial government will share its Alberta Parks flood recovery projects and progress stories this spring and summer.
