The Town of Okotoks is seeking feedback regarding the future of Champion Park.

The park was founded in 1979 and was donated to the Municipal District of Foothills and the Town of Okotoks by the Knowlton family in 2016.

Two open houses have been held in the pak since then.

A survey is available on the Town of Okotoks website, and asks a multitude of questions relating to resident's previous experience with the park and what they would like to see in the future.

Currently the park includes a restored railway station based on the railway in Champion Alberta, several locomotives, and a lake. Any future developements would be added only to the undeveloped areas.

Approximately 80 percent of the 54 acre site is undeveloped.
