Eckville is proud to be considered the “Community of Choice” in Central Alberta.
The Town is only a short drive to urban centres and the Rocky Mountains, but also has many local amenities.
Eckville has much to offer residents and visitors – a senior’s facility, 2 private gyms, numerous parks and playgrounds, an Elementary School and a High School.
There is a local Recreation Board that offers numerous programs and activities for families. In 2014, Eckville focused on recreational growth – adding a Walking Trail and Spray Park. The 1.2 km paved Walking Trail is the first phase of Eckville’s Pedestrian Trail Network.
