Known as a town that encourages active living and community building, the town of Okotoks provides its residents the facilities they need to be active and, at the same time, interact with other members of the community.
They have facilities that all ages will enjoy like parks (they have a separate off leash dog park for residents with animal companions) and pathways, the Pason Centennial Arena, and the Okotoks Recreation Centre, which offers indoor amenities like the gym, running tracks, and pools as well as outdoor facilities like the BMX Track, Skateboard Park, and Water Spray Park.
On August 13, the Okotoks Recreation Centre will be opening their doors for the fall registration of their community programs. Such programs include swimming classes for children and adults, Learn to Skate, dance, and sports like badminton, basketball, volleyball and many others.
The centre also released the schedule of personal development programs for children and teens, such as Beyond the Hurt: Bullying Prevention, Home Alone Safety, How to Survive Junior High, Never Be Lost, Safe Kids, and Scavenger Hunt Smart Phone. Most of these classes are free while some have a fee.
For those who are in the artistic side, arts and crafts programs are offered to residents. There are also language classes in case you want to learn a new tongue!
Older residents are given an opportunity to stay active as well through Okotoks’ Older Adult & Restorative Fitness Programs. This includes yoga for residents aged 55 and above, equipment-free exercise routines, and many more.
If you would like to register for any of these programs, you can go to netreg.okotoks.ca or call 403-938-8954. You can also personally visit the Okotoks Recreation Centre to register. Okotoks Community Programs Fall Registration starts on August 13 at 6 AM.
Although these programs are also open to non-residents, wouldn’t it be great to be part of this community? Interested in moving to this town? Okotoks homes for sale are being sold starting at the low $500s at Ranchers’ Rise. Visit the show homes today to learn more!
