Alexander Wilderness Park is a stunning nature preservation park in the north Lethbridge river valley. Encompassed by coulee slopes on the east and bordered to the west by the Oldman River, this tranquil park will refresh your connection with nature.
Just steps from the parking lot is a cozy picnic area amidst the coulee. Public washrooms are available during the summer months. A short walk through the coulee valley takes you down to the flood plain and cottonwood forest with just over 2 km of natural trails.
With no dogs or bikes allowed, wildlife are abundant in this park. Be sure to bring binoculars or a bird book on your casual stroll or vigorous hike through the park as many different species can be spotted making the park their home.
The park is open from 7 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. during the summer.

- Bikes and dogs are not permitted
