Aaron Provincial Park is 116.7 ha in area and supports a rich ecological and cultural history. Ancient Aboriginal peoples used Thunder Lake as a historic food collection area and Thunder Creek as a canoe route. In the 1880s the Canadian Pacific Railway was constructed next to the present park site and was instrumental in opening the area to settlement in the 1900s. Over time, Thunder Lake became an increasingly popular recreational site, and the need for a park here became apparent.

A popular recreational park northwest of Dryden, Blue Lake boasts a long, sandy beach and water so clear you can see the bottom at six metres. Take a hike with park naturalists through a spruce fen and stands of majestic pines, over ancient bedrock, past lady’s slipper orchids and blueberry bushes.

The Dryden & District Museum is located at 15 Van Horne Avenue near the Municipal Offices. Various artifacts and theme rooms are displayed. Guided tours are available. The museum is also wheelchair accessible, has a wheelchair for visitor use and has elevator service.  The museum features four galleries on two floors with an area of 4000 square feet. There are over 10,000 artifacts, permanent and rotating displays and a research library.
