“Pic of the Week”, October 20, 2017: Paradise Valley, Alberta

06 Paradise Valley, Lethbridge (2)

There are probably more places that go by the name “Paradise Valley” than by any other.  This particular one is situated on the western outskirts of Medicine Hat, just off the TransCanada Highway in eastern Alberta.

The valley was home to the native peoples of Alberta for thousands of years.  They lived here, gathered wild berries, and hunted buffalo (chasing them off a cliff at a nearby”jump”).  They valley has a rich archaeologic record documenting this history which has been extensively explored. 

Today this Paradise valley is home to a public park and golf course, and has this pretty floral wagon situated within it.
