Saskatoon Island Provincial Park is one of Alberta's first provincial parks, dating back to 1932, and has been a federal migratory bird sanctuary since 1948. Located just 20 minutes west of Grande Prairie, the park's mosaic of forests, wetlands, shrub lands and native prairie provides habitat for an amazing variety of plants and animals. The park is just over 100 hectares in size and is home to a large number of grassland, forest and lakeside birds, including the Trumpeter Swan. The park is situated on an isthmus between two lakes - Saskatoon Lake and Little Lake. The lakes are not suitable for swimming due to low water levels and thick vegetation, however, they are great places to watch waterfowl, canoe or kayak. The park is open year round to enjoy during any season.
