Historical Information:

This residential community is located on Highway 40 west of the Summer Village of Waiparous and was developed in the early 1990s.


Community Resources:


Linear municipal reserve exists for additional trail construction. A large recreation lease exists to the north of the community. This lease is jointly held by the MD and the Summer Village of Waiparous (SVW). A trail system exists on this parcel of land and is maintained by the local Ghost-Waiparous Trails Association (GWTA) following the Back 40 Resource Management Plan.

FireSmart planning has been undertaken by the partners and will be moving forward under the guidance of the Back 40 Firesmart Committee (a GWTA working committee with members from Benchlands, Ghost, SVW and Forestry) as funding opportunites arise with community information and consultation occuring at each operational planning step.
