Outdoor Fun

We've got family fitness, skateboard & outdoor skating rinks and so much more

High River Outdoor Fitness Park

The High River outdoor fitness park is located at 251 9 Avenue S.W. and consists of nine exercise machines that use a person’s own body weight to create resistance. The fitness equipment allows for a wide variety of flexibility, mobility, range-of-motion, cardio, and strengthening moves to provide a well rounded workout that is accessible to all ages, skill levels and body types. The machines are built from high-quality, durable materials and are weatherproof.

Each machine is equipped with easy to follow instructions that explain safe operation, as well as the health benefits. 

The Outdoor Fitness Park was a joint project from Cargill Foods, the Town of High River, High River 4C Coalition, the Calgary Rural Primary Care Network and Alberta Health Services.

We're here to help! For more information, please call 403-652-4042.

Outdoor Courts

This outdoor facility located in the Montrose neighborhood, provides 5 outdoor courts with an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors while playing a game of Tennis or Pickleball.

A drop in court is available for public use with admission and information provided at the Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex.

Outdoor Skating Rinks

The High River outdoor skating rink is located at 820 Highwood Trail S.W., beside the southwest community gardens and historic Town Farm site.

The skating rink is maintained by the Town’s operations department and offers seasonal outdoor skating opportunities. Due to fluctuating temperatures in the winter, including Chinooks, maintaining outdoor ice can be a challenge.

Crews need the daytime temperatures to remain around -12 for a minimum of one week to begin installation and maintenance of the ice rink.
