Muskoseepi Park

Reviewed By KellyFred - Edmonton, Canada

Beautiful, quiet spot to walk, run, bike, play. A real oasis in the city. There is a water park for kids and a playground but also kilometres of paved walkways for all ages. Worth an early morning rise!

Eastlink Centre

Reviewed By Keith592016 - Grande Prairie, Canada

The Eastlink centre is second to none. The facilities are world class and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The biggest downfall is the way they set up the fees. You can't just go for a swim or just go for a workout. Your fee is to use the whole facility whether you want to or not. Other places are cheaper. They need to rethink there strategy.

Grande Prairie Museum

Set in picturesque Muskoseepi Park, the Grande Prairie Museum, opened in 1971 with a focus on preserving the pioneer history of the area. The Museum’s galleries highlight the first homesteaders and those who contributed to the development of the Peace Region. Visitors will also find a replica paleontological dig site featuring locally found bones of an Edmontosaurus. Other gallery exhibits include Prehistoric stone artifacts used by the first Aboriginal people to settle this area, transportation artifacts including a replica train station and military and war displays. The Grande Prairie Museum consists of the Rodacker/Campbell Gallery located in the main museum building, which is home to our temporary and permanent exhibits, as well as an outdoor Heritage Village.

I had the opportunity to visit this little museum with family. It is very well laid out. I was impressed with the scavenger hunt style challenges that the museum has created for families. We watched children searching for items identified on the challenge - a great way to engage young minds. The working model of a windmill is very good. There is a cutaway so that you can see how it works. I quite liked the bones and stones display. A great collection of fossils and arrowheads. I also admired the military uniform display. The names of the person that wore or donated the uniform is included. Made the display really personal. The collection of obsolete technology was fun. I recognized lots of electronics that I have used over the years. A great way to spend an hour!

We did a little drive out to Saskatoon lake provincial park park. It was still quite wet out but the kids enjoyed the trails and park in the day use area. Can't wait for summer as it's a nice campground and picnic spot.

Grande Prairie Live Theatre

Reviewed By Laurie N - Grande Prairie, Canada

The theatre is small, amazingly flexible, and with wonderful acoustics. I've been here for everything from raucous musicals to classical to acoustic folk music and even movies, and loved them all. Have a glass of wine or a beer in the lounge area upstairs during intermission.

Heritage Discovery Centre

The Heritage Discovery Centre (HDC) is an exciting interpretive museum located on the lower level of Centre 2000. The vast history of the Peace Region is portrayed from the Mesozoic Era, the last Ice Age, Aboriginal and Metis settlement, the arrival of the pioneers and subsequent development of local resources. Visitors can stroll through the galleries at their own pace and learn about our history through interactive displays and survivor games. HDC is open 7 days a week, year-round and admission is always FREE!

Reviewed By Keli61 - Grande Prairie, Canada

The Heritage Discovery Centre is downstairs in Centre 2000. I liked the animatronic dinosaur, Piper, and the teepee, which you can actually go into! It was a great way to spend a rainy afternoon. It is set up in a time line format starting with the dinosaurs and the ice age, then working it's way up to the pioneers and industries of the area today. Bring comfortable walking shoes and some money for admission. (It is reasonable at $5 per adult or $12 for a family) They do have a debit machine as well as a selection of souvenirs. It works well for people who only have a limited amount of time.

Moonshine Lake Provincial Park

Reviewed By Thomas T - Sexsmith

I had not been back to this camp ground for a good many years! Last time I was there we were playing ball every Sunday, central peace fastball league just about every sunday!
They now have it mostly for camping and fishing, I didn't see any spot for swimming and as I remember it never was very good, even thou we did swim there. Lots of camping spots that they never had before, and a very peaceful setting.
We visited last summer and it sure brought back old memory's!
