Land-use Zoning

Zoning is an important tool in management planning. It allows specific areas in a site to be managed differently than the land base as a whole. 

An activity that is allowed by a site's classification may not be appropriate across its entire land base.

Seven land use zones are currently used in management planning for parks in Alberta.

Preservation Zone

Wilderness Zone

Natural Environment Zone

Historical/Cultural Zone

Visitor Services & Facility Zone

Access Zone

Integrated Management Zone
