Alberta Parks remain accessible, but the public is prohibited from using Alberta Parks facilities, including toilets, picnic areas & warm-up shelters. This is the same approach the federal gov is taking with national parks. Please practice appropriate social distancing in parks. https://t.co/ISDp2Z7lsw PaddleAlberta photo
