Recreation opportunities are bountiful within Clearwater County. In addition to the many outdoor recreation opportunities in the West Country, we are also home to a variety of parks, from small community playgrounds to large provincial recreation areas. Recreation facilities in our area include the Christenson Sports & Wellness Centre, the Credit Union Co-op Aquatic Centre (indoor), outdoor tennis courts, outdoor skating arena, skateboard parks and curling arenas.
Clearwater County has partnered with the Town of Rocky Mountain House and the Village of Caroline to provide recreation facilities and opportunities to residents and visitors alike. The County shares recreation funding with the Town of Rocky Mountain House on a fifty-fifty basis. Ninety per cent of the Village of Caroline’s recreation funding is provided by the County. By sharing funding with our partner municipalities we can ensure that County, Town and Village residents alike all have equal access to higher quality recreation opportunities.
Clearwater County also provides support for local community hall groups in the form of insurance payment support and capital project grant funding.
