Other Information

Park Court Natural Area encompasses an area of moderately rolling uplands with a steep embankment along the Pembina River. The uplands are mainly aspen or aspen-balsam poplar forest and the river embankment varies from sparsely vegetated, eroding cliffs to more gently-sloping areas with aspen forest or shrublands. The westerly portion on the Pembina river is incised by a deep ravine with white spruce-paper birch-balsam poplar forest. There is good wildlife habitat, with reports of elk using the area and abundant bird species (Alberta Parks web site, 2012).

A site visit in 2021 indicated that the Eastern portion was highly disturbed by off-highway vehicles [1]. The land separating the two portions is private [2].
