Riel Recreation Park

Attracting athletes and fans from across the Capital Region, Riel Recreation Park features an outstanding multipurpose artificial field, as well as rugby and soccer facilities. Many visit the park to make use of the upgraded 92-stall RV campground, banquet facility and rodeo grounds, the latter of which draws thousands to the area each year with the Rainmaker Rodeo.
