The parkland is a transition between the mixed-wood forests to the north and west and the drier prairies to the south and east. Stands of poplar are interspersed with grasslands and meadows, giving areas a park-like appearance. This rich agricultural land has black soils and receives ample rainfall.

Travel

Many of Alberta's major metropolitan centres are found in the parkland, including Edmonton and Calgary. The region is travelled by all-season highways, gravel roads, and major airports.
