Chain Lakes Provincial Park

This park is located in Willow Creek valley between the Porcupine Hills and Rocky Mountains. The creek was dammed to form Chain Lakes Reservoir. Large clumps of willow and open grassland result in willow parkland, which is not well represented elsewhere in Alberta's parks and protected areas network.
