Communities

Strathmore

Strathmore is located just east of the city of Calgary on the Trans Canada Highway, and is a booming bedroom community that offers easy access to the big city while still retaining a small-town feel. Strathmore is said to be one of Canada's fastest growing communities. Strathmore is a vibrant community with excellent sporting venues, schools, shopping and walking trails to enjoy with the family.

There are a number of things for visitors to Strathmore to do: check out a hockey game at the Strathmore Family Centre, go for a swim at the Aquatic Centre, play a round at one of the golf courses or check out the scenery at one of the many parks.

Drumheller

The rich, rolling farmlands suddenly break away to reveal an astonishing, twisting, turning canyon, walled with multi-colored layers of sandstone, mudstone and coal alternating with shale sequences. The rock layers date back to the Late Cretaceous Period, just before the demise of the dinosaurs. Drumheller is located in the Heart of the Canadian Badlands. We are one of the few areas in the world where the sedimentary layers from earlier time periods have been scraped off by natural processes, exposing a rich cache of fossils and even complete dinosaur skeletons.

Drumheller is a favorite tourist destination, with more than 500,000 visitors each year.

Three Hills

The town of Three Hills is the ideal place to live, work, play and study. Three Hills enjoys a variety of social events throughout the year, and is centrally located within driving distance of various larger centres.

Three Hills has the security and quality of life a small town offers with numerous “big city” amenities. Three Hills boasts excellent recreation facilities including a hockey arena, curling rink, bowling alley, aquatic centre and historical museum. Three Hills has five parks within the town limits, as well as tennis courts and ball diamonds. Downtown features many retail and dining options.
