Some areas in Waterton Lakes National Park are now open to the public after the Kenow Fire. Closures are still in effect for other areas due to safety hazards and infrastructure damage. Please see the up-to-date list of open and closed areas.
Akamina Parkway is closed to all use including non-motorized access until further notice due to Kenow Fire.
Waterton's winter storms can quickly drop large amounts of snow onto park roads, often followed by strong winds. In response to these challenging conditions, Parks Canada has set priorities for snow removal.
Road maintenance is done first on Highways 5 and 6 and the Entrance Parkway. This is followed by high-priority streets in the community; then Chief Mountain Highway; and last the community streets designated as low priority.
