After nice lunch at Morrison House Cafe we went to Ellis Bird Farm which is about 15 minutes southeast of Lacombe. Surprisingly there's no fee to look around. The land is beautifully landscaped with lots of mini trails leading to different attractions like mini pond, gazebo, etc. Lots of shades overall with many benches to sit down and relax. Bird houses are everywhere with the names of the donors... Some people said they could spend 2.5 hours there checking out the trails but we spent about 75 minutes. I would say that was enough time to look around all. Perhaps we didn't sit still long enough to observe different birds. It could be a great spot to bring picnic lunch over too. We're glad we went.

Kudos to the Kraay family for creating a marvellous recreation destination for families. We had the pleasure of a multigenerational outing there with grandparents, parents and 7 children ranging in age from 8 weeks to 18 years. There was something for everyone! Some of our favourites were the Fairytale Corn Maize where we were guided through the tall tall corn by Reading a series of numbered story cards, a variety of blow up active bouncy sites and then mining for precious gems by sluicing sand in a channelled water chute....and there is so much more!! I highly recommend the Kraay Family Farm as an enjoyable day trip for families.

Signed up for this to try something new and different - had no idea what I was getting into but it didn't take long for me to realize this was not going to be like one of those boring, hour-long trail rides. We were in a riding arena and on horses right away. Safety was Roy's first rant (that's what he calls them but in reality - he is an excellent teacher - not only telling us what we needed to know but explaining why and sharing his experiences to help us understand). There was never any pressure to do more than we were comfortable with but we were given lots of different things to try. The Camp was well thought out - broken down so that by the time I was ready to get off the horse, we did. The demonstrations and instruction were just as enjoyable as the horse time. On top of everything else Chrissy does, she is an amazing hostess and cook - sharing meals with her family and the other participants was a real bonus. We got to know everyone on a more personal level - the Sturgeon family and their workers are open, friendly and a lot of fun. I didn't talk about the activities because you have to experience this camp to appreciate it - it is so worth it! Finally, because I know Roy would want me to be clear - this is NOT Heartland, it is a real working ranch (although, if you actually see Roy at work - you will think he is a "horse whisperer"). Thank you - this was one of the best "new and different" experiences I ever had.

Built in 1902, the Blacksmith Shop Museum is the oldest operational Blacksmith Shop in Alberta today. While some additions and alterations have been made over the course of its hundred year old existence, the shop's original forge continues to be used in blacksmithing demonstrations taking place today. Admission is free, donations are gratefully accepted.
We visited the Blacksmith Shop Museum as part of our adventure with Lacombe Days. Being inside a century-old still-operational Blacksmith Shop was amazing. One of our group is Reading novels which tell about some of the equipment and technology related to blacksmithing, and for him it was a chance to see first-hand what he has been Reading about. One person there was making tools, and another used branding irons to burn messages onto cedar planks, for a small donation. What a wonderful souvenir of our day in Lacombe!

Lacombe Golf and Country Club are located midway between Calgary and Edmonton along the QEII. The golf course is a very traditional par 71 layout, with many large trees lining the fairways. Accuracy is at a premium because if you avoid the trees, the small undulating greens will certainly test your spirit.
The layout of the course is kind of boring, especially with back to back par threes. I hated the hole that followed the main road into Lacombe, afraid of any shot going toward the road. The restaurant was ok, again nothing special. The golf cart that was given to us was dirty (very dirty). I wouldn't go back unless I got such a great deal on green fees.

I wanted to share the lovely experience I had at Healing Hands. I treated myself to a massage while visiting family in Lacombe. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and my therapist very attentive. If you are looking for either a therapeutic or relaxation massage, I would highly recommend visiting Healing Hands.

We are a funky art gallery and framing studio.
I bought a beautiful painting here last weekend! The gallery boasts Alberta artists (paintings, pottery, giftware) and super friendly staff (June, the owner, is very entertaining & knowledgeable). This place is a hidden gem in Lacombe. Be sure to browse through if you're in the Lacombe area or make it a destination visit. They have paint nights, too!

The Flatiron building in Lacombe is the first of two flatirons to have been be built in Alberta. It was built in 1904 and served as the Merchants Bank of Canada until 1922 when it became the Bank of Montreal. For over a century, the infamous 'flatiron block' was home to many businesses in the community. Almost 100 years after the building was erected, it was privately bought and renovated. Today, the main floor and basement of this landmark is home to the Flatiron Museum and Interpretive Centre which showcases didactic displays illustrating aspects significant to the history of Lacombe.
This is one of 3 museums offered in Lacombe. The building is unique. They have some nice souvenirs for sale here as well.
