In addition to eerily beautiful scenery, Dinosaur Provincial Park has some extremely important fossil discoveries. The park is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rich fossil resource, extensive badlands and riparian (riverside) habitats.

Anglers can expect to catch Northern Pike in most of the larger bodies of water, with Walleye being stocked in a number of the area reservoirs. Some of the more popular fishing spots are Crawling Valley Reservoir, Lake Newell, Rolling Hills Reservoir and Tilley B Reservoir. The area rivers also provide fishing opportunities with the Bow River producing catches of Northern Pike, Walleye, Whitefish and some Trout and Sturgeon. Catches in the Red Deer River include Northern Pike, Walleye, Sauger and Goldeye. NOTE:  In 2018, the EID initiated an Aquatic Invasive Species Prevention Program. All boaters wishing to access EID reservoirs must follow approved prevention procedures and complete a watercraft information form stating they will not knowingly spread aquatic invasive species. As part of the program, trailered watercraft must only be launched from approved boat launches and boaters must check in with the campgrounds, marina, or EID office before launching. Canoes, kayaks, and other non-trailered watercraft may continue to be launched at random locations, but the boaters are still required to check in with the campgrounds, marina, or EID office prior to launching. Boaters can visit Lake Newell Resort Marina, Rolling Hills Campground, or Crawling Valley Campground to register for the program. Watercrafts include motorized (boats, sailboats, zodiacs, etc.) and non-motorized (canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, sailboats, etc.). For more information please visit

Annual Brooks Medieval Faire

Event Destination.

Annually, approximately 100,000 tourists visit the Brooks Newell Region to camp and experience the naturally occurring beauty of the Canadian Badlands. 

The City of Brooks is in the heart of the County of Newell where three provincial parks exist. The towns and villages, as well as the city, offer an abundance of shopping and recreational opportunities.

The Brooks Newell Region is capable of hosting a variety of special events with our impressive facilities and availability of professional services. Our facilities have recently hosted large and small conferences, formal events, weddings, graduation ceremonies, receptions, meetings, fundraisers, festivals and retreats. The Region boasts welcoming accommodations, top notch food services, diverse meeting spaces and all the necessary add-on services that make events successful and affordable. Available business services include catering, linens, souvenirs/gifts, equipment rentals, florists, decorating, photography, and audio-visual.

Sports Tourism is expected to be a major driver for the tourism industry as the City and County, along with Visit Newell, work to attract major events. The City is the host of Hockey Canada's 2019 National Junior A Championships, formally the RBC Cup. Historically, the event has generated more than $2 million in local economic impact, with event proceeds being directed to supporting hockey development in the host community. The region has also been host (twice!) to the Southern Alberta Summer Games.

New recreation facilities continue to add to the regional tourism industry. Over $22 million dollars was recently put into renovating and expanding the JBS Canada Centre. The recently constructed Brooks Regional Ball Park, home of the Brooks Bombers, houses quad-ball diamonds. The Centennial Regional Arena (CRA) is a 74,000 square foot facility with a NHL-size ice surface (200 x 85 ft). More importantly, it's home to the Brooks Bandits. The Village of Duchess opened the Duchess Recreation Centre, a 29,000 sq. ft. multi-use facility in 2015, which is the recreation and culture hub for the Village.

The City of Brooks also recently signed a contract with an event promoter to bring in large concert and entertainment events. The first concert hosted through this agreement will be Clay Walker in the Spring of 2019.
