Parkland Community History - Low Water Lake

Contributed for use in Alberta Digital Archives by Darlene Homme


Low Water Lake
Low Water Lake was first known as Goose Lake because it was a sea of geese and ducks in autumn. Furs of muskrat, weasel and mink were plentiful on the lake and the Indians and homesteaders in the area trapped here. As the years went by the hay meadows became of greater importance. A permit was obtained to drain the lake by a Colonel from Ottawa. A number of men worked for years under difficult circumstances trying to drain the lake and today Low Water Lake is a large hay meadow but still extremely wet and boggy.
