DID YOU KNOW?
D.A. Thomas Park is a day use area that has fire pits, picnic tables and beautiful views of the sunset on the Peace River!
The Peace River
The mighty Peace River was our first highway. Traveling upstream, the voyageurs searched for furs, hides and provisions which were needed to sustain further exploration and trade. The Peace is one of the top three Alberta rivers to be nominated for Canadian Heritage River status.
Located along the Peace, in Wood Buffalo National Park is Peace Point. Here the Beaver and Cree settled differences in 1765. The river was thus named "Peace" or "Unchaga" in the Beaver language.
