Alberta’s southernmost city, Lethbridge’s most magnificent characteristic is its coulees—a network of large rolling hills that were formed by glacial spill water over ten thousand years ago. The Old Man River snakes its way along the dry, sandy soil of Southern Alberta, carving its channel an inch deeper with every passing year.
The area’s rich history can be explored at Fort Whoop Up and the Sir Alexander Galt Museum. During the Second World War, Japanese Canadians were forcibly relocated from the west coast to the Lethbridge area where they were made to work as farm labourers. This accounts for a strong Japanese cultural presence today, a fine example being the impressive Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. While in the area,be sure to visit Glacier/Waterton National Park,as well as Banff National Park.
Just west of Lethbridge, Alberta, the walls of this canyon formed by the Old Man are nearly one hundred feet high. With its steep cliffs, hoodoos, and contrasting shades of green, Paradise Canyon offers an abrupt change in the prairie landscape – it’s an oasis in the middle of one of the driest, windiest regions in North America. It’s also a perfect setting for golf. The Paradise Canyon course has been rated as one of the top courses in western Canada and described by Golf Digest as “one of the best places to play.”
