More about Kuhnen Natural Area

The Kuhnen Natural Area, found along the north bank of the Red Deer River, is one of the newest additions to the County’s inventory of parks and natural spaces. The 65 acres of forested land offers lookout points onto the river valley and a trail that leads down to the water. This is also the second piece of land that the Kuhnen family has generously donated to the County. Like with the Kuhnen Park (found just north of Blackfalds), the family has donated the land to provide an area for public enjoyment and to conserve the area’s natural beauty.
