This 3km long concrete aqueduct was built 90 years ago to bring irrigation water across a long, shallow valley. Today, it tells the story of the Canadian Pacific Railway and Alberta's Eastern Irrigation District.

We had to draw a deep breath when arriving at the aqueduct after a short ride on a dusty gravel road which is hardly to find beause of a slapdash description and signposting. The remnants are modest, have partly to be underpinned. To make an...More

This is the reason our area exists. Over 100 years ago, this amazing structure was built. Always a nice visit, great for photographers as the view is astounding!

Drove out to see this site in the dead of winter. It's technically closed but the interpretive signs are right on the roadway with some interesting trivia about the historic engineering feat. Make sure to read the info!

This is a great place to stop and have a picnic, read a bit about history and even walk along the aquaduct. Be sure to drive to the end of the gravel road, since you can peek inside the aquaduct's basin when you reach the...More
