Kananaskis Country -

Kananaskis Country is a park system situated to the west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the foothills and front ranges of the Canadian Rockies. Kananaskis Country can be accessed by three highways that run into or through the area. Kananaskis Country is noted for recreation and tourism.
Kananaskis Country was officially dedicated as a protected area 25 years ago, a place where Albertans and visitors from all around the world can enjoy nature, renew one's spirit and reconnect with wilderness. Almost every outdoor enthusiast will be able to enjoy activities in all seasons.
Most of the development is within Peter Lougheed Provincial Park and along the highway 40 corridor that parallels the Kananaskis River.
