Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park

September, 2021

Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park is a natural park in Canada straddling the Alberta-Saskatchewan boundary and jointly administered by the two provinces. Located southeast of Medicine Hat, it became Canada’s first interprovincial park in 1989.

The Cypress Hills plateau rises up to 200 metres above the surrounding prairie, to a maximum elevation of 1,468 metres (4,816 ft) at ‘Head of the Mountain’ at the west end in Alberta, making it Canada’s highest point between the Canadian Rockies and the Labrador peninsula.
