40 Mile Park
Water in Southern Alberta is a scarce resource, and is depended upon for agricultural livelihood of many. The Saint Mary River Irrigation District diverts nearly one billion cubic metres of water every year to farmers, ranchers and municipalities who need it.
While water sustains the livelihood of Southern Alberta’s hardworking people, the canal system that diverts all that water also provides recreation opportunities for everyone.
40 Mile Park is set along a reservoir and has become one of Southern Alberta’s most popular boating, fishing, and RVing spots.
The sites are big, the boat launch can handle dozens of vehicles, and the reservoir is big enough for everyone to get on the water.
