Imagine yourself enjoying small-town living in a community that is surrounded by the majestic Canadian Rockies. Vistas of mountain grandeur are only a short distance away when you reside at Okotoks Village, a manufactured home community in Alberta. The best part is that you are amidst all of this natural beauty, yet a short 15 minute drive to the attractions in Calgary.
Whenever the mood strikes to find a scenic spot for outdoor activities, head to Sheep River Provincial Park. The cares of the world will ebb away in this quiet, peaceful oasis that offers fishing, hiking, cycling, horseback riding and picnicking. After feasting your eyes on waterfalls, trees and a pristinely clear rushing river, as well as soaring mountains in the distance, you’ll want to return often.
Okotoks Erratic, otherwise called Big Rock, is a quite a sight to behold. It’s an 18,200-ton boulder that a rockslide deposited on the prairie in ancient times. The rock formation is composed of light grey and pink quartzite. When you visit, you can climb on the rock, tour the cave and read the interesting posters that provide information on the rocks.
Aside from the above attractions, the area has a museum and some art galleries that beckon visitors to explore. You’ll also find plenty of restaurants, one of the most popular of which is Cha Cha Johns Fusion Kitchen. This eatery, with a menu that combines Indian cuisine with modern food, has received rave reviews.
