Rails to Trails in Drumheller, Alberta is one of 14 projects that have received a portion of $1 million as a 2024 recipient of Co-op Community Spaces. 

"Partnering with this organization ignites a spark of excitement, as the project will re-establish a connection between these municipalities. Together, we will support sustainability and accessibility throughout the community, building a welcoming future for everyone involved." said Mike Isaak, General Manager (Westview Co-op).

Co-op Community Spaces is designed to help protect, beautify and improve spaces across Western Canada. Celebrating its 10th year, Community Spaces has invested a total of $13.5 million in 189 projects in three categories: recreation, environmental conservation and urban agriculture. FCL administers Community Spaces on behalf of more than 160 local Co-ops operating in 600 communities. 
The Rails to Trails Project looks to develop a 19-kilometre pathway system utilizing the decommissioned CN rail line. This route starts at the Midland Bridge in Drumheller to the Community of Wayne. This project aims to foster greater connectivity between the surrounding Communities, perfect for outdoor recreation and accessible to everyone.  

Join us on June 25th from 11am to 1pm at our Drumheller Home & Agro Centre as we celebrate and enjoy a FREE bbq!
