    Lovely small town market with lots of excellent "Make it, Bake it, Grow it" vendors! Make sure you visit Doefs Greenhouses, Soap Much More & Clover Grove Honey!

    We like hiking and walking, and decided to explore this provincial park while we were staying in Drayton Valley. Our first walk was in the north block of this park, which is developed, signed by and managed by the local cross-country ski association. This section is just a walk in the woods, with hardly a river view. It would appeal most to people interested in wildflowers and birdwatching, or walking the dog. We would recommend long pants here, as in the summer, you'll be walking through lots of tall grasses. We were surprised to find that some of the trails doubled as a disc (frisbee?) golf course. In winter, it looked like it would be a fun place to cross-country ski, but should be lovely in the fall to see the colours.

    Next, we drove back into town, and then continued south east a few kilometres, to the south block. The south block has a campground in one section. They have developed hiking trails in two parts, "Hillside" and "Hilltop" in a different section. We hiked all the trails in this section, and clocking in just over 5 km's all together, taking about 1.5 hours. The trails were generally good, but there were a couple of steep, muddy sections. Some trails were more overgrown than others. There were bugs, so we'd recommend bug spray.

    The south block area was also a walk in the woods, with hardly a view, but with a few picnic table dotted throughout. We didn't see any fire pits. It might be interesting for winter-walking or snowshoeing, as long as the steep sections are manageable, but would certainly would be lovely in the autumn colour season.

    I am not done the course yet, I'm taking paramotor training.
    To be a good instructor at something like this takes a certain kind of individual, Claudio is just that.
    This is high stakes stuff, and the instructors have a lot of responsibility. Claudio is calm, well spoken and quite good at his work, sometimes they have to be firm with you, so you get it, like you do with a child you love who is in danger if he messes up, that is also handled with grace, but the right amount of firmness. Its an art to train this stuff, and I really think I am in one of the top places around.
    Also, the gear and the way they do everything is top notch, the system they have put together is quite efficient and league's ahead of what I can assume you would get elseware.
    The farm / facility is lovely, as are all the folks you will bump into.
    I am impressed, I am 2 days into an 8 day program.
    I would definitely recommend, I feel safe, in good hands, with real folks teaching me who care about my outcome.

    I have visited this shop numerous times and every time there are new things to discover. Everything is beautifully displayed at excellent prices! I heard that the owner supports women starting their own businesses and that makes me feel good buying local!

    I have attended several dinner events at the Max Center and have enjoyed every one of them. The events are held at our local high school. Students in the culinary course assist in the preparation of meals served at each dinner event. Lighting, and sound systems, I believe is also done by the students which is a great incentive for students to get real on hands experience. The atmosphere and set up of the theatre is excellent and people generally have a great time when they attend the events. The performers, including comedy shows, bands and singing groups such as ABBA and the Eagles tribute bands were well worth an evening out. Depending on the event, it is sometimes difficult to get tickets in this small community of Drayton Valley, so whether you are visiting, live in other parts of Alberta, or live in our small community of Drayton Valley grab some tickets and enjoy a great evening out. The Max also hosts weddings, community fundraisers, private parties and corporate functions. The money raised by the events hosted back to helping Students.

    Went over the holidays. We typically head to the city to watch movies on the big screen. This time the weather was too cold to make the trek into Edmonton. So we went here. Pleasantly surprised the popcorn was good and the theatre was clean with comfy seats and it was quiet.great place to watch a movie. Will definitely go back.
