Alberta parks damaged by the June 2013 flooding in southern Alberta are being restored through an $81 million investment over four years.
Funding will support restoration efforts in:
The worst flooding in Alberta's history destroyed approximately 170 km of pathways and recreation trails. More than 60 day-use areas were damaged in addition to more than 50 campgrounds.
Alberta's provincial parks are essential to the health and well-being of its users and serve as destinations for visitors from around the world.
Restoration efforts are already underway, thanks to the efforts of Parks' staff and thousands of volunteers. Work will continue this fall and winter to prevent further damage, and to restore critical infrastructure. Major restoration work will begin next year.
