This park may well become one of the great urban parks of North America. Central Park in New York and Fairmont Park in Philadelphia, like our own Fish Creek Provincial Park were both large countryside parks when they were created. As urban development surrounded them, they became featured landmarks and great urban open spaces. Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park offers the same opportunity.
The Harvie family together with the Government of Alberta has created a provincial park that is a world class legacy. Its modern history and inventory of native fescues are juxtaposed to create a near urban preservation opportunity that is unparalleled.
