The Cypress Hills have been nourishing bodies and souls for centuries.  Aboriginal people came to these pine-crested highlands to share in the bountiful resources and participate in key spiritual ceremonies.  Today’s visitors play and relax in a striking park that honours its heritage by preserving the land as Canada’s first Interprovincial park and Dark-Sky Preserve spanning the Saskatchewan – Alberta border.

For visitors, experience the steep rises, lush valleys and pine-scented breezes which lend a mountain air to this prairie island.  The area is recognized for its many special features including rare orchids, fescue prairie, expansive lodgepole pine forest, unique geology and a fascinating cultural/historical significance, not to mention the highest elevation between the Rockies and Labrador.

Excellent day–trip opportunities exist for the traveler or come stay a while in one of the campgrounds, resort accommodations or nearby bed and breakfasts.

Experience a park with no boundaries, where the pines touch the prairie sky.
