Community Services

Community Services is responsible for ensuring that quality of life opportunities and experiences are available to the residents of Carstairs  and surrounding area through the development, management and support of recreational and cultural services.

Our vision is of a thriving community with an abundance of recreational and cultural services.

  1. Community Services will - first and foremost - assist and encourage groups to meet their own needs.
  2. Community Services will provide programs directly only when groups are unable to provide for themselves.
  3. Community Services will take a pro-active role in coordinating community resources and promoting prevenative services.
  4. Community Services will focus on facilitating leadership training and coordinating special events
    which promote community spirit.

Walk for the Health of It

Walking is Canada's most popular physical activity because it is enjoyable and requires no special equipment or costs. 
In Carstairs, we are lucky to have an indoor walking track at the Carstairs Arena. This provides residents with a rubber track to walk on year round. 
The walking track is open from 7:00 am to late night during the winter months!
