First recognized across Canada in 1990, Parks Day is a great opportunity to discover the treasures and natural beauty that exists all around us.

Protecting over 27,600 square kilometres of the province, more than four times the size of Prince Edward Island, the extensive system of almost 500 provincial parks and protected areas ranges from conservation-focused to recreation-focused parks.

From the hot, dry badlands, to vast boreal forests, to alpine tundra, Alberta Parks hold some of the most diverse, unique and breathtaking landscapes in the world.

Parks Day is celebrated annually on the third Saturday of July.
