Three hundred and eighty hectares of undisturbed native grassland has been donated to Alberta’s provincial parks system. At the request of donor Gottlob Schmidt, who resides on the land near Hanna, the land will become Antelope Hill Provincial Park.
Schmidt will continue to reside on the land for the immediate future and when he does leave his homestead, the province will open the park to public use and manage the land in accordance with his wishes. The park will be managed for wildlife purposes and low-impact recreational uses such as hiking. Hunting, overnight camping and off-highway vehicle use will not be permitted within the park.
