Police Outpost Provincial Park

Located near the Alberta-Montana border, Police Outpost Provincial Park preserves a small area of parkland. The park gets its name from a Northwest Mounted Police outpost established at this location in 1891 to deal with whiskey runners. Nowadays, the park is a destination for camping, hiking, mountain biking, and paddling. A nearby wetland is home to diverse species of animals, especially birds, making the park a lovely place for birding and wildlife viewing in general. UPDATE: Alberta Parks is continually monitoring operations to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
