WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR
Proud home of skeleton racer, World Cup Champion, and Olympic Bronze Medalist, Mellisa Hollingsworth, Eckville is a small community, but one of which we are very proud. Our gratitude goes out to the many folks who came to this land in the early years who with perseverance and determination made Eckville what it is today - a vibrant community with warm hospitality.
Today, this prosperous growing community is the center for agriculture, oil and gas, and lumber enterprises as well as a major center for people to live in and enjoy the "small town atmosphere" with the "big town amenities."
Eckville offers the visitor and resident alike a full range of retail businesses, shopping, restaurants, public services, banks, excellent sporting facilities, a Community Centre, Seniors' Friendship Centre, Seniors' Lodge, and two golf courses, just to name a few. Annual events include the Dance Jamboree, Winter Carnival, CARA Rodeo, Bull-Arena, Curling Bonspiels, Canada Day Celebrations, Annual Parade, Municipal Breakfast, and various tournaments including hockey, baseball, and school sports.
A short drive from Eckville in any direction brings many attractions from the Rocky Mountains, back country, to ski hills, major lakes, trout ponds, and many campgrounds. Eckville is located in the heart of the Parkland off Highway 11 between Red Deer and Rocky Mountain House and is surrounded by scenic rolling hills, winding rivers, rich mixed farmland, and a thriving oil and gas field. Please feel welcome here. YOU ARE!
Helen Posti, Mayor of Eckville
