Celebrate Parks Day in Elkwater this weekend

Celebrate Alberta Parks this Saturday (18th July) with Parks Day. Free Programs, Community Association fireworks, Bingo, Craft and Trade fair and an open mic session on the beach.

We often get the question "Why choose Elkwater in the Cypress Hills, Alberta over the more traditional locations in the Rockies such as Banff or Jasper or Kananaskis?" Well...the answer is simple...a busy day in Elkwater is a very slow day for these destination areas. People who come from Calgary, Edmonton or Lethbridge are often amazed at the peace and quiet that they get and the space to explore nature and feel like they have their own, private park. This summer we have heard more statements of "I can't believe we haven't tried here before" than we can count.

Alberta Parks has a huge variety or Parks, each with its own personality. However if crowds are not your thing...Elkwater may be just the place!
