Waterton Lakes National Park
Waterton Lakes National Park is a small, quiet, National Park of Canada, located in the South Western corner of Alberta, bordering Glacier National Park in Montana, USA to the South and British Columbia to the West. On May 30th, 1895, the first portion of the area now known as Waterton was protected by the Canadian Federal Government as a Dominion Forest Park. Later becoming "Waterton Lakes National Park", the 4th National Park in Canada.
Bordering Glacier National Park in Montana, Waterton and Glacier were joined in cooperation and the spirit of peace in 1932 to form the world’s first International Peace Park. The park is also designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve.

Waterton is a blend of unusual geology, mild climate, rare wild flowers, and a welcoming community. With excellent dining options, shopping, golf, horseback riding, world-class hiking and much more, Waterton Lakes National Park is a year-round destination that everyone should experience.
