“Irrigation history of Alberta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Interesting bit of local history, well preserved. Reminds you that no-one can survive on the prairie desert without water, and explains how irrigation schemes have enabled farming in Alberta.You can drive or walk along the site.

“A Wonder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

When I first seen the Aqueduct, I could not believe my eyes. It is something that every one should see. It certainly took alot of work to build this marvel.

It was kinda neat but nothing out there except the aquaduct, a nice walk but a little boring.
An interesting part of local history

“Underwhelming!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This is basically a ruined cement half-pipe (open at the top), that once carried water in an irrigation system. There is very, very little to see, but the explanatory panel is useful in understanding how it worked.
