The Paddle River is a short river in west-central Alberta, Canada. The river is named because of its slow speed. During the fur trade era, a canoe could be easily paddled up the river, in contrast to the more arduous task of ascending a swifter river like the Pembina River that required poling or tracking.The river generally flows in an eastward direction from its headwaters, although there are significant meanders and a large number of oxbow lakes along its course. It passes near the town of Sangudo, and brushes the municipality of Barrhead before joining the Pembina River. It is bridged by many secondary highways, as well as Alberta Highway 43 and Alberta Highway 33.
