Alberta Parks wants your input about the redevelopment plan for the Sikome Aquatic Facility! Sikome is an artificial body of water located in Fish Creek Provincial park. With the hot temperatures we’ve had this summer, the public swimming area has been very well used! In fact, visitation has dramatically increased since Sikome opened in the late 1970s. It’s time to upgrade and modernize existing facilities.
Complete the survey between now and August 26. You can also attend an open house to learn more about the project and to express your thoughts and ideas.

To enter, submit a selfie (or group picture!) in dino country or a dino-themed picture at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, Dinosaur Provincial Park, Jurassic Forest, the Calgary Zoo, etc. Not sure where dino country is? Think “badlands,” or just check out our handy Dinosaur Trails map!
