  1. Another good one we stopped at on our way home this weekend is in Rimbey. Right next to the pool, but the sorat park is free and even if the kids want to go swimming, the pool is very nice as well and only $15/family.

  2. The one in Brooks is JUST off of the highway, we stop every time we are travelling past it on our way to Medicine Hat. It is right beside a HUGE newer playground that has three levels of equipment for children of different ages. My toddler LOVES it. And there’s also an outdoor exercise area with tons of workout machines for adults! There’s picnic tables under a gazebo for shade. And the water park itself has lots for kids to do. You can turn the water on by pressing the green button on a post.
