Issue Brief: Closing and delisting Alberta parks

Updated: July 28, 2020

The province is planning to close 20 parks sites and delist another 164 sites, although the timing is still uncertain. Internal government documents show there was no analysis of costs, public were excluded from consultation and land sales have been considered.

What you can do

In addition to sending your MLA a letter, you can support the I Use Alberta Parks campaign to show that Albertans use the sites that will be closed or delisted.   

  1. Log your visit: Go to one of the 175 sites and log your visit.
  2. Adopt a park: Print out a poster and post it at the trailhead to spread awareness of the delisting.
