Brooks Aqueduct
Brooks Aqueduct

Completed in 1914 by the Canadian Pacific Railway’s irrigation division, the Brooks Aqueduct was a vital link in its expansive irrigation network. Extending across a shallow 3.2 km valley, this site stands as a monument to the pioneers who developed this region. Nearly a century ago, the Aqueduct stretched the limits of engineering design and the new concrete technology. Through interpretive tours and public programs, it continues to stretch the imagination today.

The site is open from May 15 to Labour Day and is located 8 km southeast of Brooks, Alberta, just off the Trans-Canada Highway.
