Lovely area and plenty to do in and around Drumheller. Make sure you take in all the sights and attractions available. Most walks are easy to do, the area is potted with things to see and do.

This is an easily accessible park. . Come here with your family and let them roam. Most tourist venues in and around Drumheller are so busy. This is a welcome relief. Natural, beautiful and rejuvenating.
