Athabasca County partners with neighbouring municipalities to support recreational facilities in the region. Studies show that when we live active lifestyles we are healthier and more productive in life with family, work and in our communities. Recreational facilities are an important part of our region and help people choose the Athabasca region as the place to run a business or raise a family.
