Living in Sundre
Sundre and its people take great pride in being one of the most beautiful and well-planned communities in the province. In fact, in both 2019 and 2021, the town scored five full blooms from the “Communities in Bloom” program, which recognizes efforts to beautify, preserve, and enhance natural elements within municipal areas. This highlights the large role that the natural world plays within the town and its surroundings. There are about 2,000 campsites within just 10 miles of the town’s centre, many of which are connected on a large network of hiking and biking trails.
Because of this, each year millions of people pass through on their way to the mountains. Sundre’s location near the intersections of Highways 22 and 27 make it a popular route for those going to Jasper National Park, especially as it is one of the only places to cross the Red Deer River in the area.
Luckily, residents don’t have to go that far to enjoy themselves and have a good life. Two schools – River Valley School (K-8) and Sundre High School (9-12) – cover the area’s educational needs, while a hospital (the Myron Thomson Health Centre) covers medical necessities. A public arena offers space for public skating and local hockey games. There’s a fitness centre and aquaplex, ball diamonds, golf courses, museums, performing arts centres, and plenty of other cultural facilities, as well as several churches to choose from. Add in some bakeries, pubs, and mom-and-pop restaurants, and you’ve got a whole lot of charm.
