Kleskun Hills is becoming a provincial park.
The province says in a news release that the new Kleskun Hills Provincial Park will include more than 1,000 hectares of protected land.
County of Grande Prairie Reeve Bob Marshall said in that same release; “With its Indigenous cultural significance, it is a fitting tribute that Kleskun Hills be designated as a provincial park within the County of Grande Prairie. We welcome visitors to the area this spring to celebrate the grand opening of Kleskun Hills Provincial Park and to experience a fascinating glimpse at Canada’s northernmost badlands ecosystem and all that our region offers.”
The province said in 2019 it had purchased 15 quarters of neighbouring land but had not yet decided what to do with it.
