LINDSAY A. EVANS PARK
Take a peaceful drive through the bountiful farmland and countryside to the Lindsay A. Evans Park (South of Kitscoty on 897, West on TWP 490 for 3.5 miles and it is on your left). A tranquil setting for bird watching, picnics and even some canoeing. Open daily 7am - 11 pm from June 1 to after the Sept long weekend. Alcohol not allowed. The park is named for Lindsay A. Evans (1891-1976) - a renowned local artist and nature lover dedicated to enhancing his community. Definitely a great little gem in our County!
