Projects plentiful at Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park – by Noel Eddy, Cochrane Now
The first of what is hoped to be three sunshades in the Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park is now being enjoyed by park visitors.
The sunshade was funded by The Great Trail (Trans Canada Trail) in honour of Alberta statesman and former premier Jim Prentice, who was known for his passionate support and interest in parks and conservation.
Designed and built by Capital Renovations, the shelter is meant to look like a traditional farmer’s lean-to with plenty of seating for a rest or picnic. The wide opening of the shelter was designed with wheelchairs and large strollers in mind. It’s located on the west side of the park along the Bowbend Trail.
The construction of this sunshade was completed last week. It was funded by the Trans Canada Trail in memory of Jim Prentice, Alberta statesman and former premier. (Photo/GRPF Facebook)
