On behalf of the citizens of Strathmore I welcome you to our town and I invite you to stop, visit and experience our way of life.
Strathmore is the gateway to the Badlands. We are over 100 years young and are a growing community of 13,324. Close enough to enjoy the city attractions in Calgary but far enough away to enjoy the quiet rural lifestyle. A community where the prairies meet the wetlands, where our proud past is part of our exciting future.
We say "Quality of LIfe is a Way of LIfe".
We support Quality of LIfe throughout our many recreational facilities. This includes a Family Centre with two indoor rinks, home of The Strathmore Wheat Kings and the CFR Strathmore Bisons, a hockey team that consistently competes at the Macs Midget Tournament in Calgary and in 2015 went on to compete at the national championship. The indoor Aquatic Centre features a six-lane competitive pool, waterslide, climbing wall, hot tub, children's pool and diving board; something for the whole family. A four sheet curling rink, outdoor tennis courts, ball diamonds, soccer pitches, and 18-hole and 9-hole golf courses are all located in Strathmore for your enjoyment. 2015 saw Strathmore celebrate the opening of an 18-hole Disc Golf Course, built and supported by our youth.
We enhance the Quality of LIfe with our parks and pathways system that is continually expanding to ensure a walkable and active community. With over 50km of pathways, including a paved loop around the beautiful Kinsmen Lake and the wetlands at Gray Park, families and running enthusiasts are able to enjoy a scenic route every day. Download the S'more Paths App from the Apple Store today to track your route through town.
Quality of Life is exemplified by an outstanding hospital with 24 hour emergency care, an excellent school system, admirable seniors' residences and lodges, attractive neighbourhoods with many well maintained parks. Kinsmen Park is in the heart of Strathmore where one can enjoy live music in the outdoor ampitheatre, youth and seniors can enjoy fishing on the lake, and the kids can run through the Lions Splash Park in the summer.
Strathmore's Quality of Life is celebrated year round by our thriving artistic and cultural community. The Strathmore Theatre Players are a highly successful group that puts on various plays throughout the year. In the fall you can see what our local artists have to offer at the Arts & Sounds in the Park Festival.
Quality of LIfe is expressed through our amazing residents who dedicate their time to their community. There are numerous clubs and organizations available to adults, youth and seniors alike including the Happy Gang and the Youth Club of Strathmore. Volunteers are always welcome to participate in major community events such as Canada Day Celebrations, Heritage Days Strathmore Stampede, the Santa Claus Parade, the Celebration of Lights, and the Relay for Life, just to name a few. I encourage all citizens to find something that sparks their interest and help to make Strathmore an even better place to work, live and play.
Strathmore is proud to have hosted the 2015 Alberta 55 Plus Summer Games. We hosted the ATB Alberta Cup hockey tournament in 2013 and 2014, the Tour of Alberta Pro-Cycling Race in 2013. We believe all ages and abilities should be active in our community.
You can enjoy our Quality of Life in our many local stores. Our shops and services will meet everyone's desires. Strathmore is proud to have been named the Best Small Community for Business in Western Canada by Venture Magazine in 2012.
We're not stopping. We are looking to the future by offering more for our citizens. Future plans include more shopping, a revitalization of our downtown businesses, a new K-9 school and more family friendly facilities. Strathmore offers numerous development opportunities, with a broad base of commercial, industrial and residential land primed for development.
Whether you are visiting, looking to relocate your business, or looking for a new place to call home, Strathmore is a place where you will find caring, friendly, compassionate people.
Welcome to our Home!
