Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta adjoins neighbouring Glacier National Park in Montana.  Together, they form the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.  The Canadian government established Waterton Park in 1895, and the United States government established Glacier National Park in 1910.

Waterton is a small national park covering only 505 sq. km. (195 sq. miles).  This is bear country and its southern Alberta location is renown for ferocious winds.

Admission to the park is $19.60 per vehicle (with up to seven passengers).  Annual passes valid for all Canadian national parks are available.
