Spring has sprung!
There are many activities to enjoy throughout the City of St. Albert in the springtime. Longer days and warmer temperatures are calling you to spend more time in nature. Clear your mind and fuel your body through fitness and fresh air!
Our Recreation and Parks department invites you to take advantage of the scheduled and drop-in programs and services at Servus Credit Union Place or Fountain Park Recreation Centre. The options are endless. Below are a few highlights of the Spring Activity Guide activities you and your family can enjoy:
- Breathe in the crisp, spring air with a walk, rollerblade, bike or run along our scenic Red Willow Trail System.
- Local wildlife will be more active now that winter has ended. Go wildlife watching in Riverlot 56 or the Lois Hole Provincial Park and see the excitement first hand.
- Get beach body ready with a personal trainer at Servus Credit Union Place.
- Visiting a lake this summer? Get prepared for outdoor water fun and practice your swimming skills with lessons and drop-in swimming at Fountain Park Recreation Centre.
- Drop in to badminton, shinny hockey, basketball, volleyball, or join a program like boxing, ballet barre, spin, pilates and more at Servus Credit Union Place.
- Need to relax from all your spring cleaning? Enjoy using the hot tub, sauna, steam room or lazy river in the Landrex Water Play Centre at Servus Credit Union Place.
And what about the dogs, you say? It’s warmer out and our pooches are looking for fun places to run and play off-leash. You can take them to one of St. Albert’s Dog-Friendly Parks - Dodger Dog Park or Lacombe Lake Dog Park.
- Dodger Dog Friendly-Park is located on the north side of 400 Campbell Road near Servus Credit Union Place. It is a great place for your dog to run and play off-leash while you enjoy the natural setting and socialize with other dog owners!
- Lacombe Lake Dog-Friendly Park is located at 151 McKenney Ave. It features a fenced off-leash area, a pond and treed walking trails. Please remember that all dogs must be on-leash when outside of the designated dog-friendly park.
There are also many off-leash sites (including outdoor rinks) available for dogs when not in use by a sporting activity.
Please remember when using off-leash areas:
- Dogs are not allowed in playground areas.
- Entire area on-leash when organized sporting activities taking place.
- Trails are on-leash.
- Please pick up after your pets.
