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.
