Rotary Park

Reviewed By nealeglidden - Whitecourt, Canada

I have be a resident of Whitecourt for 10 years and watching Rotary grow into the Family orientated park has been amazing. It is the perfect place to pack some food and swimming clothes and head to for a day of rest and relaxation for the whole family. The younger kids love the splash park and the older ones will love the water slides.

Hard Luck Canyon

Reviewed By anacreon100 - Winnipeg

The canyon is is little piece of unexpected topography just outside of Whitecourt. The "trail" if you really want to call it that is a short, nicely groomed walking path that brings you to a scenic gorge, at which point you can descend the stairs to the little creek below.
Seniors, children, families...this is accessible to pretty much anyone other than those who rely on a mobility-assist device of any sort. Also, the stairs are pretty steep, so anyone who finds that challenging may require a helping hand. I noticed that whoever oversees this place thoughtfully placed a bench right near the top of he staircase. Seniors appreciate that kind of detail!

Whitecourt & District Forest Interpretive Centre

Reviewed By Mari D - Leeds

If you're passing Whitecourt on your travels to the north of Canada, we would highly recommend dropping in to this visitor and information centre if only to savour the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff there. The facilities are kept immaculately clean with coffee/tea available for free. The museum display is small but very descriptive, built mainly on the donations of items from local residents but Anna is the star here. She enthuses about her centre and does everything possible to make you feel welcome to her area, answering every query in detail and with patience. Her bubbly personality makes you feel very welcome. Highly recommended!

Eastlink Park is the new hot spot to go for all your skiing, snowboarding and tubing needs. They have a awesome terrain park with all the jumps, rails and they even have a table top!! They have a magic carpet that gets everyone even the tubers back to the top of the hill. The rental staff is great and friendly and offer sharpening and waxing if your board or skis need a tune up. And don't forget to visit the staff in Guest Services. They are helpful and friendly and always greet you with a smile!!
My daughter has her up and coming birthday party there where they offer tubing birthday parties and I have heard you can even rent the space for for private events and functions. Check out the hill - you wont be disappointed!!
