About Brown-Lowery

Brown-Lowery is a day use provincial park located southwest of Calgary. It offers a good view of the Rocky Mountains and pretty decent hiking opportunities. The park was donated in 1969 by Home Oil Company Limited in memory of its founders: Robert Brown Sr. & Major James Robert Lowery. These men were pioneers in the creation of Alberta’s oil industry. Lowery also served as a politician for Alberta’s Conservative Party between 1913 – 1921. Interestingly, he fought overseas in World War I while actively maintaining his legislature seat in Edmonton.
