Through the badlands and among the hoodoos, in the coulees and the trees — this was a land where dinosaurs roamed. It’s easy to imagine prehistoric creatures around every corner in the Alberta Badlands, making it a fun and fascinating destination for families. We love to visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, but there’s even more reason to spend a day in the Drumheller area this summer! Barney’s Adventure Park opens on June 15, 2024, giving families the perfect opportunity to unplug, explore, and PLAY!

Barney’s Adventure Park is Drumheller’s largest recreational destination, offering a wide range of activities across 27 acres. The Park opened in 2020 and is located less than 2 hours from Calgary and only minutes from the Royal Tyrrell Museum. They offer RV parking and plenty of capacity for visitors to spread out and enjoy, plus loads of fun and activities for families of all ages.

The park showcases Drumheller’s prehistoric history and its coal mining and agriculture industries. New this year is an exciting water feature to keep you cool on those hot days. Whatever your kids are into, with over 40 attractions and interactive activities, there’s something to keep everyone entertained and active.

Outdoor Fun

This summer, plan an unforgettable adventure at Barney’s Adventure Park. Burn some energy in Boomtown, a play area inspired by the mining history of the Drumheller Valley. Run, jump, swing, slide, and glide! Then head to the Barnyard and celebrate the agricultural history of Alberta. Lose yourself in the corn maze, take the perfect picture in the sunflower and pumpkin patches, and cheer on the piglets in Ma Gilbert’s Mini Pig Races. Of course, you’ll want to visit the goats, chickens, cows, and horses, too. You can even say hi to the alpaca. But don’t forget the dinosaurs! Head out for an animatronic dinosaur walk and let your imagination run wild.
