Discover Greenwood

The Smallest Incorporated City In Canada

Step back in time and visit an era of early Canadian charm. A thriving mining town in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, it is still a thriving city today.  Our history is what draws many people to our city, with more than 60 heritage buildings that paint the landscape, each has it’s own story to tell.

With abundant lakes, rivers and parks, Greenwood offers year round fun along with an interesting Japanese history that you will want to discover in our amazing Museum. Greenwood is your historic destination along the Crowsnest Highway 3, just north of the USA border.
