Description

William Watson Lodge is situated in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park, overlooking the Lower Kananaskis Lake. When Kananaskis Country was established in 1977, the Government of Alberta announced its intention to develop selected areas within Kananaskis Country as multi-use recreation areas for all Albertans. William Watson Lodge was opened September 22, 1981 by then Premier Peter Lougheed and his wife Jeanne. Jeanne has been accredited with the idea of creating a facility for the disabled in Kananaskis Country. The Lodge has proved to be the most successful facility for persons with disabilities within the Alberta Parks system.
