Berrymoor Bridge Day Use Area
Located along the North Saskatchewan River, adjacent to the East of Hwy 759, is a road allowance managed by Brazeau County that was the site of an informal boat launch for many years. Historically, this area was used as a loading area for the ferry that used to cross the North Saskatchewan River before the bridge was constructed.
In 2022, the area was developed into a day use area, complete with vault washroom facilities, parking, and a picnic area.
