The Town of Rocky Mountain House has been working towards improving the Recreational and Community services within the community below are a couple of examples of the exciting projects they are set to unveil, continue to support and looking to improve:
The Town of Rocky Mountain House is set to unveil Curtis Field renovations at a ceremony on October 10, 2013. The renovations and upgrades to Curtis Field began earlier this spring and were quite extensive the upgrades included a chain-link fence, sod, topsoil and bleachers. The old practice field has been upgraded to a "premier sports field" and has received a retaining wall, a fence, bleachers, topsoil and sod. Lighting infrastructure was installed between the 2 fields and can be commissioned at a later date. Curtis field was ready for play the beginning of September with the new premier sports field since under construction and possibly not ready until spring 2014. The total cost of the renovations cost more than $890,000.
The Town of Rocky Mountain House will continue to fund the maintenance of 2 popular gravel trail systems Twin Lakes Trail and monitor the National Historic Site Trail. Just outside of town limits the 12 kilometer Twin Lakes gravel trail system established in 1995 begins off highway 11 and continues towards Crimson Lake. The trail system to Twin Lakes features rolling hills, and nature views. The trail is used by outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy nature hikes, runners, pet owners and cyclists. This is a great asset to our community and provides an opportunity for residents and visitors to experience the local country side without traveling too far out of town.
A major expansion and upgrade to the Rocky Area Complex has recently been approved and is scheduled to commence March 2014. Along side this expansion the Curling Club has decided to proceed forward with an exciting three million dollar renovation to their 60-year old building. This will include a modernization of the main level and lounge, a lobby expansion, and an upgrade to the ice plant. The upgrades to the lounge area would change the flow of the building opening it up to the second level of the hockey rink side creating potential for business during hockey games and tournaments.
