Strathcona Science Provincial Park

Local nameStrathcona Science Provincial Park
LocationSherwood Park, Canada

Strathcona Science Provincial Park is a provincial park in Alberta, Canada, located between Edmonton and Sherwood Park, south of the Yellowhead Highway and west of Anthony Henday Drive.

The park is situated in the North Saskatchewan River valley, on both banks of the river, at an elevation of 625 m and has a surface of 2.9 km2. It was established on December 12, 1979 and is maintained by Alberta Tourism, Parks and Recreation.

This site was for thousands of years the site of an annual aboriginal camp, as it was located close enough to the river for transportation and trade and the bluffs of the river valley provided excellent bison-hunting opportunities. The park was established to preserve the site from encroaching industrial development.
