2017 National Winners

Town of Millet

Visitors might mistake the Town Hall and Museum building for a garden center because it has so many flowering plants at the entry. The museum opened in 1985 has accreditation as a Recognized Museum in Alberta and professional quality and varied nature of the exhibits, research and archives leave no doubt that the designation is deserved.

City of Leduc

The Telford Lake Boardwalk completed in the spring of 2017 provides the residents of Leduc a number of benefits. If your interests lie in exercise you now have an extension of the 80 km multi trail system. The boardwalk is around 150 meters long just skirting the western end of Telford Lake. The exciting aspect of this project is that it allows the Trail to be extended around the entire north shore of the lake passing through a naturalized area.

Stonewall is known for its limestone quarries. In 1983, one of the abandoned quarries was developed into the beautiful historical site and natural area known as the Stonewall Quarry Park. This park is adjacent to Kinsmen Lake, a man-made lake developed after the closure of the quarry in the 50’s. Stonewall Quarry Park site is very much used by locals and visitors for education and recreation purposes. New activities are added (i.e. pumpkin trail) as well as improvements to the landscaping.
