Outdoor Aquatic Strategy

Strathcona County is developing an Outdoor Aquatic Strategy that will guide the long term planning for outdoor aquatic recreation facilities in the County over the next 15 years. In order to develop the Strategy it is important to gather the perspectives of the general public and users of the outdoor aquatic facilities (spray parks and spray decks) in Sherwood Park. We want to hear from you. The project team will be at these events looking for feedback on outdoor aquatics in Strathcona County:

  • Rural Living Days
    June 11, 2016

  • Sherwood Park Farmers' Market
    June 15, 2016 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
