Cypress Hills Provincial Park

The Cypress Hills Dark-Sky Preserve is one of the darkest, easily accessible dark-sky preserves and one of the largest with 39,600 hectares protected – that’s 97,850 football fields! To help visitors better experience the amazing dark sky that surrounds the park, Cypress Hills Saskatchewan opened their doors in August 2011 to an observatory.
