Beasts and Bridges!
Helen Schuler Nature Centre
Meet the critters who call the coulees home at the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Climb to the rooftop garden for a high-level introduction to native plants and the prettiest place to see the High-Level Bridge! Then take what you’ve learned about nature and explore the trails.
Indian Battle Park
Keep walking, and you’ll be in Indian Battle Park. You will love the playgrounds, skipping river rocks on the Oldman River and finding a place to picnic. Book yours at leisure.lethbridge.ca.
This area is also home to Fort Whoop-Up. Cannons, costumes, a blacksmith—this replica of a traditional trading fort is where history comes to life. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride!
The Oldman River Observatory at Popson Park runs a public observatory and solar viewing at certain times of the year. Talk about exploring further afield!
Cor Van Raay YMCA
Nature is great, but when it gets messy outside, you need some indoor fun. Check out the Cor Van Raay YMCA. The aquatic centre has a wave pool, waterslide, and surf station! Skating superstars will even find 2 ice rinks at Cavendish Farms Centre.
Climbing Critters, Leaping and Laughing!
When you grow up, do you want to be a marvellous mountain goat, a rascally raccoon, or even a super-slow-motion sloth? Then you probably need to be hanging out on the climbing walls of Coulee Climb! Perfect for an orangutan-in-training!
Ascent Climbing Centre
For even BIGGER climbing challenges, check out Ascent Climbing Centre at the University of Lethbridge.
Jump LA Trampoline
Once you’ve scaled walls, why not really defy gravity? Hop over to Jump LA Trampoline.
Grown-ups, remember that most of these places need you to sign a waiver and accompany younger ones.
