Grasslands

Grasslands National Park is where wild plains bison roam free on the prairie and where you can sleep underneath the stars. Located 117 km south of Swift Current, Grasslands is one of the darkest Dark Sky Preserves in Canada and the only one of our 39 national parks that represents prairie grasslands.

Travel the 80km self-guided Ecotour Road in the West Block to discover stunning landscapes and cultural history. The East Block is the richest resource of dinosaur fossils in the country, and within the park there are over 12,000 ancient teepee rings.

Unique formations of land and climate have created niches for rare plants and animals including the black tailed prairie dog, black footed ferret, sage grouse, burrowing owl, ferruginous hawk, short horned lizard and prairie rattlesnake.
