Fishing & Fishing Dock
Fishing at West Stettler Park is permitted. However all Alberta province wide regulations involving sport fishing must be adhered to.
What was once a stocked Rainbow Trout pond, over time more fish species were deposited into the pond. Species like Pike, are not friendly to trout and as a result the pond is no longer stocked but we have seen excellent natural growth of the Pike Fish population over the past number of years. The fishing is great and you don't have to go far!
Gazebo & Bandstand
Residents and visitors can enjoy free live music in a beautiful outdoor setting! Stettler’s Annual Canada Day Celebration and Music in the Park Summer Concert Series are always sure to entertain.
Are you an up and coming musical artist or performer? Evening entertainment opportunities are always appreciated by our residents! To book for your group for a slot at the Band Stand, please call the Parks and Leisure Office at (403) 742-4411.

Main Street Park
The Downtown Park was donated by Don and Sylvia Peters and family in 2013. It is locally referred to as the "Old Stettler Travel Site". The wish of the Peters family was to have the park dedicated to all the pioneer businesses of Stettler. The Heartland Beautification Committee initiated a Downtown Park Committee to come up with a design that could be presented to Town Council. They chose to showcase The Stettler Cigar Factory, the Stettler Train Station and Jimmy's Hardware by installing facades. After the park was built, the Carl Stettler Memorial was moved to Main Street.
