      • Why:

      Since 2019, visitation to Kananaskis Country has increased by 32 per cent. In 2020 and 2021, the region welcomed more than 5 million visitors annually.

      Grassi Lakes and Goat Creek are two popular areas in the region and increased visitation has put increased pressure on existing facilities and the landscape. This work is necessary to address site degradation, public safety issues, emergency access, parking congestion and waste management challenges.

      To provide formalized parking and trailhead facilities, Parks will be expanding four parking lots. To align with the parking lot work, trail construction work will occur on the Grassi Lakes trail and Goat Creek trail.

      Conservation Officers will enforce the area closure under the Provincial Parks Act. Please do not cross construction barriers and follow all signage.

      Our staff is happy to make alternative recommendations. Please visit https://www.albertaparks.ca/parks/kananaskis or call the Kananaskis Information Line at 403-678-0760 to find many other options that will interest you.
