Prince Albert National Park protects a slice of the ‘boreal’ forest. It is also a meeting place or transition zone between the parkland and the northern forest. The park features many outstanding natural wonders and cultural treasures.
The park is the only fully protected white pelican nesting colony in Canada, the isolated, lakeside cabin of conservationist Grey Owl and a free-ranging herd of plains bison. During a visit, enjoy special events and interpretive programs that help you make more connections with the patterns and processes of this ecosystem. The townsite of Waskesiu, located in the park, provides extensive services for visitors.
Whether you visit in Spring to see the migratory birds or summer for the beach and lake, or autumn to ride on horseback or winter to cross country ski, there's so much to see and do in all seasons for the family. Takke a picnic and soak up nature, or take a canoe to explore the forest lakes, there's endless outdoor experience to enjoy and explore, whatever the weather!Suggest an edit
