Municipal District of Greenview – From Meadows to Mountains
The Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 has everything for the recreation enthusiast. Rugged Rocky Mountains in the southwest to vast untapped wilderness throughout the many lakes and rivers – the M.D. has it all!
If you enjoy fishing, you can cast your rod in a number of lakes within Greenview. Walleye, whitefish, jackfish and rainbow trout are abundant in Greenview, offering a variety of angling opportunities. Sturgeon, Swan, Iosegun, Smoke, Pierre Grey, Goose, Crooked, Victor, Grande Cache, Meekwap, Musreau and Two Lakes offer incredible fishing experiences. Swan Lake is aerated year-round to provide ideal fish habitat and ensure a healthy stock.
If you fish the Smoky, Little Smoky, Wapiti, Kakwa, Iosegun, Simonette or the Berland Rivers you may be able to catch and release bull trout, arctic grayling, walleye, pike or a Rocky Mountain whitefish.
When it comes to hunting, it’s a sportsman’s paradise. Hunters from throughout the world come to seek their trophy moose, elk, white tail deer, bear and mule deer. Each fall hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese stop in the Municipal District on their way south for the winter. It is a remarkable Winter Sleddingevent that attracts sportsmen and birdwatchers from all over North America.
In the summer you can play on golf courses throughout the Municipality. Whether it is the wonderful golf course at Valleyview Riverview or the Meridian Drive Golf Course in DeBolt, the pristine Greenview Golf Course near Sturgeon Lake, or the DeBolt Golf and Country Club, we’re sure you will enjoy the hospitality and the challenging holes.
In winter what better way to enjoy the outdoors and plentiful snow but to downhill or cross country ski. The regional ski hills at Grovedale and near the Little Smoky offer groomed, man-made snow. Cross country trails are located at Young’s Point Prov. Park and Sunset House. If snowmobiling is your favorite winter activity, you can enjoy the hundreds of miles of groomed trails that connect to the Trans Canada Trails.
There are private and provincial campgrounds that offer excellent places to stay and camp, hike, swim, fish, boat and water ski.
The Valleyview and District Agricultural Society’s Annual Fair and Rodeo in early August promises three days of excitement and diverse entertainment. Pancake breakfast, a parade, outstanding exhibits, a cattle show and concessions offer an exciting backdrop to the rodeo events that fill the stands.
Other popular community events include the Annual Mud Bog and Tractor Pull (Valleyview Motor Sports Club), Annual Wagon Train and the raft races on the Little Smoky. For those that love winter activities the Red Willow Riders Snowmobile Club hosts winter events.
For the rugged outdoorsman there is the challenge of the back country along the Simonette or Puskwaskau Rivers.
Enjoy the seasons with your choice of activities in the M.D.
