Big Hill Springs Provincial Park Reopens

Big Hill Springs Provincial Park is open  after a two year make-over which cost $1.2 million.  Please enjoy the Park responsibly- especially at this time when the new plantings are fragile.

Here is the letter sent by Alberta Parks asking Rocky View County for  a 1.6 kilometer gravel extraction buffer zone to protect the Big hill Spring Provincial Park from gravel mines.  It was disregarded.

BCPS and Friends of Big Hill Springs Provincial Park are afraid the regulatory process will not protect the Park. We are asking those who love the Park to contact  government officials to bring political pressure to bear. We need to demand a 1.6 kilometer setback.

Please send your demand for a buffer and a copy of this letter to these people (and anyone else you’d like):

Jason Nixon, Minister of the Environment at,

Shane Schreiber, Assistant Deputy Minister at

Peter Guthrie, our MLA at

Many Thanks
