Central - Alsask - Hwys 7, 44
The former village of Alsask is located along Hwy 7 just inside the AB/SK border. From the early 1960s to the late 1980s, a military facility containing the long range radar unit, the 44 Radar Squadron - part of the Pine Tree Line (Cold War era network of military radar stations) was located adjacent to Alsask. Remains from the facility were designated a heritage site in 2002 and will be repurposed as an observatory tentatively set to open in 2017.
Local services and recreational facilities are available.
