We've saved you a seat!

Parks Canada has five sets of red Adirondack chairs in quiet and scenic locations throughout Waterton Lakes National Park. Whether it’s a place to rest after a leisurely stroll or the marker at the end of a strenuous hike to announce "I’ve Made It!", our red chairs offer a place to slow down, to relax and to discover the best that Parks Canada has to offer.
