Outdoor Facilities

A Little Something for Everyone

The Town of Strathmore strives to provide the community with a variety of outdoor facilities to meet every interest, sport and recreational need. In 2015 three outstanding outdoor recreation facilities were added to our community with the support or our amazing community partners. The Lions Regional Outdoor Rink was built with support from the Strathmore Lions Club, who have always been actively involved in outdoor recreation development. The rink is located north of the Strathmore Highschool. The Disc Golf Course, was a project led by the Strathmore Assembly of Youth and built with support from the local business community. And finally, the Bocce Courts were built by as a legacy from the Strathmore 2015 Alberta 55+ Summer Games. Pickleball lines were also added to the outdoor tennis courts following the 55+ Summer Games and nets can be rented out from Wheatland Elementary School.

Get Out and Get Active

All outdoor recreational facilities are first come first serve and users are encouraged to share the space, showing respect for all and making room for users of all ages and abilities to recreate their own way. Some facilities have user rules and regulations, all which are posted onsite, please respect the regulations and the facilities. Any damage, graffiti, or vandalism can be reported to Town Operations Department: Call 403-361-2137 or Email operations@strathmore.ca

Storm Ponds are not for Recreation

The bodies of water located in Strathmore are storm ponds and are NOT intended for recreational use such as swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking or ice skating.  When it rains or the snow melts, excess water flows from rooftops, lawns, streets, sidewalks and driveways into the gutters, through the Town's storm water infrastructure and into storm ponds. These ponds provide functional storm water management meaning water is held long enough to settle out pollutants and sediment.  Due to rapidly rising water levels, water quality and drainage equipment recreational safety cannot be guaranteed. Kinsmen Lake is monitored by the Town and restricted recreation use such as ice skating is permitted when public notice is provided from the Town.
