This has just been redirected to Brooks. This strikes me as the tail wagging the dog. Why redirect a world heritage list park to an insignificant town, especially when the town is miles away?

(WT-en) Pashley: Hi, good to hear from you. You make a good point. I think it's a judgement call whether this park should be its own article, an "Other destination" in the Southern Alberta region, or a "See" attraction in Brooks. I was guided by Project:What is an article?, which gives lots of reasons to leave it in Brooks: the "Can you sleep there?" test, the "too far for a day trip" test, etc. I wouldn't object to restoring the park as a separate article using the Project:Park article template, especially if the article was improved as a result. Camping info would be especially nice. I do have one comment about the Project:Votes_for_deletion/June_2007#Royal_Tyrrell_Museum_of_Palaeontology: The Royal Tyrrell Museum is 177km away from Dinosaur Provincial Park, so it definitely belongs as a "See" attraction in Drumheller, and not in the park's article.

13 years later, I've revived the article. Am working on it, as I completely agree with you that UNESCO WHS ought to have their own articles, not redirected somewhere 50 kilometres away. I was very surprised we didn't have an article on this, but here we do. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 23:49, 19 November 2021 (UTC)Reply
