Big Knife Provincial Park


Big Knife Provincial Park was established in 1962 "to be enjoyed by all generations to come".

Just downstream of the park is the ATCO Power Battle River Coal-Fired Generating Station.

Higher water levels along this stretch of the Battle River are the result of a reservoir that was created in 1954 by a 12 metre high dam. Water from this reservoir is used to supply water to the Battle River Generating Station.
