The Bar U Ranch National Historical Site


Step back in time with a visit to the Bar U Ranch National Historic Site. This Parks Canada jewel was established in December of 1991 and was first opened to the public in July of 1995.

The entrance to the ranch is located on the corner of Hwy 540 and Hwy 22 (The Cowboy Trail). The historic picturesque park is found in the Municipal District of Foothills in southwestern Alberta.

The Bar U continues to operate as a ranch; and during the open season they host several special events that focus on the history of ranching and farming in Alberta.

The Park is not open to the public all year. Their hours of operation can be found on the Parks Canada website.
