Okotoks has a new skating trail.

The town has launched a pilot project in collaboration with the Lions Club of Okotoks to create a skating trail at the Lions Campground at Sheep River Park.

After seeing success with the trail at Laudan Park last winter, the town opted to try it out in a more central and sheltered location.

The pilot project will run during this winter season, wherein the town will decide if the trail is a good fit for the location.

Users of the trail are not permitted to use nearby fire pits and are asked to keep the area clean.

The town has a full list of outdoor rinks and toboggan hills and their statuses.
